Ashura Creative Play Scenes and Gifts

This year for Ashura I was able to find Waldorf style dolls for Nuh (a) and Musa (a).  I used animal figures and a nested wave set to depict the flood and the parting of the Red Sea that coincides with the Asura Holliday.

 
We gave the pieces as gifts for Ashura.



We used the nested waves to show the parting of the Red Sea.

We used animals in pairs, a nested wave set and a Waldorf Doll for this arrangement to learn about the story of Propheg Nuh (a). 



This year my sons received The Animals of Paradise book by Karimah Sperling.  I hope to read this book with the children soon and post the review.

The boys also received a book about Prophet Nuh (a) called Noah’s Ark by Lisbeth Zwerger.  I hope to read this book with the boys soon and post the review.  



 

Please share your ideas for Ashura gifts and using creative play to celebrate the occasion with children.
