Zam Zam Terrarium

For Eid this year I was searching for an ornament project to depict the Zam Zam water in the story of Ismail (a) and Hajar (r).  Part of our mission here at Sirajunmunira is to include the stories of lady figures in spritual celebrations so that the young ladies of our community will know more about their role models.

This project is a paper and sugar terrarium to depict the Zam Zam water emerging from the sand while Hajar (r) ran from Safa to Mawa in search of water.  

I made these desert succulent plants and Zam Zam fountain myself without a pre printed template but please see our Pinterest page for more detail: Zam Zam Terarrium.

If you would like to read more about this event to your children there is a chapter concerning the life of Ismail (a) in My Little Lore of Light by Hajjah Amina Adil.  

Please share your ideas for teaching children about the story of Eid and the rites of Hajj.
