This project is from one of our contributors. She wanted to have an interactive project for Mawlid. The flags are made of fabric she found at Joann Fabrics for $2-3 per yard.
This fabric was cut into 18×18 inch pieces. To this fabric glitter tape and rhinestone tape was added as well as the sandal of Prophet (s) cut outs. The other jewel embellishments were found in a pack at Hobby Lobby for $4. With these materials the little artists were allowed to create their own flags.
When they were finished the flags were attached to 2ft wood dowels and the fabric sealed with hem glue.
Please share your ideas for celebrating Mawlid with children.
