Dervish Dolls: Gentlemen

I have been inspired by the many peg dolls I have seen online recently for Muslim children.

I purchased some little peg dolls from

First I made the little cone hats for the turbans.  I used scraps of fabric to form each turban and some ordinary white craft glue to hold the seam.

Then I glued some soft wool to the faces.  I purchased the wool on

After the hats dried I glued each hat the head of each doll.

Next I painted on the eyes.

Then I painted each body with non toxic watercolour paint.

After the paint dried I wrapped each body with fabric to form a Jubba.

We look forward to creating more creative play activities for these new Dervish Dolls soon.

Please share your ideas for creating unique and special toys for Muslim children.
