Day 23 - Games Crafts with an Islamic Theme
Today's post is about incorporating Islam into games that children already play. I have included, Lego, Jenga, Play-doh, and Minecraft. The Lego game could involve having this as a centrepiece on your table! All 3 of my children have done something for this project!
The first photo shows a Mosque that was designed by my 6 year old daughter using her Lego Duplo bricks. I think she did a brilliant job considering she tried to make a rounded building from blocks! You could also try and get the children to make the shape of the Kaaba as at least this has no rounded sides!
The second photo shows a Mosque designed by my 11 year old daughter using Jenga Blocks. Again I think she did a really good job considering the Mosque is a rounded shape. As with the Lego you could try to have a go building the Kaaba too. You could ask the smaller children to just lay the Jenga blocks flat on the ground to make shapes of a Mosque and Kaaba.
The third photograph is a screen shot of a Kaaba that my teenage son designed using the Computer game 'Minecraft'. It is nice for him to be involved with my crafts for a change! There may be many other computer games or computer programmes where children can design something with an Islamic theme.
The fourth photograph shows a collage of a Mosque using only play-doh!. This was designed by my 6 year old daughter.
Here is a mini picture tutorial on how my daughter made the Play-doh Mosque Picture.
I have previously posted about how I make my own Play-doh - If you are interested in making your own please visit my tutorial here: make-your-own-play-doh-recipe
