Dervish Dolls: The Kaaba

Today our little dervish dolls are making tawaf around the Kaaba.  This is a practice that Muslims do on pilgrimage and children can emulate this practice with creative play.  

This scene made me think that it would be lovely to get a carpenter to make a little wood Kaaba and a mosque also eventually.  For now we are using part of a fold out book.  

These dervish dolls were commissioned by Sirajunmunira from WaldorfMagicGlade on Etsy.  

Please share your ideas for teaching children about the practices of Islam with creative play.
