Sparks fly when you visit the blacksmith!
Before visiting the blacksmith we made an effort to teach the children about the extraction of metal from rock and the Islamic technology of making steal to strengthen the metal so it is not brittle.
The children are young so we found some you tube videos to illustrate these complex ideas.
We look forward to visiting the blacksmith and the carpenter again soon for another exciting project!
Please send us your ideas for traditional Islamic crafts with children!
