Ayyam-i-Ha Countdown Flower | Alldonemonkey.com

The Bahá’í holiday of Ayyam-i-Ha is coming soon, and while I loved the countdown chain we’ve done previously, this year I wanted to jazz it up a little and do something a little more crafty and maybe even pretty.

A popular symbol among Bahá’ís is the nine-pointed star, since the number nine symbolizes unity.  I wanted to play with this image and see if I could combine it with a flower, since spring is also just around the corner (or at least that’s what I keep telling myself!)  So I made a flower countdown calendar that when opened is also a nine-pointed star.

It’s almost that time of year! Countdown calendar tutorial on the blog tomorrow! #mkbkids #kbn #momsoninstagram #ayyamiha #bahai

As any Bahá’í will tell you, a nine-pointed star is not the easiest symbol to have.  Most of us can’t just casually draw a star with nine evenly spaced point or fold a piece of paper into a simple nine-pointed origami star.  And neither, I’ve discovered, is it very easy to cut a circle into nine equal slices.

And nineteen is also a challenging number in many respects.  The Bahá’í month is 19 days long, so a countdown calendar should have 19 parts.  But how do you draw a flower with 19 petals??

So now, thanks to the magic of computers, I’ve done the legwork for you, and you can simply print and assemble your nine-pointed star flower countdown calendar!  For those not celebrating Ayyam-i-Ha, it is still a beautiful, fun craft!

Ayyam-i-Ha Countdown Flower

Step 1

Download the Ayyam-i-Ha Countdown Flower template (you can also download the Ayyam-i-Ha Countdown Template PDF) and print on the paper of your choosing.  I did the first two pages on colored paper and the last on white, so the photo shows up well.

Step 2

Cut out the circles on the first two pages, cutting about a 1/2 inch outside of the drawn line.  Cut the lines into the circle as well.

Step 3

Cut out a circle large enough to cover the photo on the 3rd page and tape it over like a little door or window.

Step 4
Glue the circles on top of the third page. The small wheel should go on first and then the larger wheel on top of that. Make sure they are all centered on top of each other.

I lined up the lines of each of the circles, though it would also be a nice effect to put them off center, so the petals alternate colors when opened.

Step 5

Write a number on each petal (with “19” on the final window to the photo of the globe) and then decorate however you like!  On the first day of the month before Ayyam-i-Ha, begin folding back one petal a day, starting with “1” and going all the way to “19” on the final day.

 December 7, 2015  Christmas, crafts Comments Off on DIY Gifts: Christmas Tree Bookmark Craft

Thanks to Colleen of Sugar Aunts for this wonderful tutorial for a bookmark your kids can make.  These are fun to do and make great DIY gifts!

Kids love to create handmade gifts for friends and relatives! This Christmas tree bookmark craft is a fun and easy craft idea that kids can make.  And the best news is, that they can create a bunch of these at once.  Everyone will love to receive these DIY gifts this Christmas!

 

This craft is super easy to make.  You’ll need a sheet of burlap and green paint.  Cut the burlap into strips.  Next, cut the burlap into bookmark sized strips.  Older kids can do this part, or an adult can do the cutting.

To make the Christmas tree shape, fold the burlap strip in half and snip a triangle near the top of the bookmark.  Snip a second and third triangle so you have a string of triangles.  When you flatten out the bookmark, you’ll have a tree shape.  You can snip a small trunk, too.

Have the kids paint the burlap, evenly covering the burlap.  When the paint dries, turn the burlap over and paint the other side.  Allow the paint to dry again. You can make a bunch of these bookmarks by painting a sheet of burlap and then cutting them into strips.  Cut the tree shape out after the burlap has been painted if you are making several bookmarks.

Pair this bookmark with a favorite book for a gift that anyone will love to receive!

 October 7, 2015  crafts, Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving Comments Off on Balloon Print Pumpkin Garland

Thanks so much to Jaime of Frogs, Snails, and Puppy Dog Tails  and All Things Kids for sharing this wonderful fall craft for kids.  Be sure to stop by her blog for more great activities and crafts!

Fall is my favorite time of the year. I love all the pumpkin decorations, pumpkin picking, pumpkin treats, and of course the pumpkin crafts. The kids and I love getting the craft supplies out and finding simple crafts to use as decorations. We had pumpkins on our minds so we made a fun balloon print pumpkin garland to hang up in the house. It was easy to make and fun for all of us as well.

Supplies/what I used:

balloon

white cardstock

orange paint

paper plate

orange yarn

hole punch

tape

To start we made our pumpkin craft. We took blown up balloons and dipped them in orange paint. The kids pressed the balloon down on the paper to make a “pumpkin”. The kids made several pumpkins with the balloon. We left them to dry overnight.

The next afternoon I grabbed the scissors, sharpies, yarn, and hole punch. I used the sharpies to draw a brown stem and green leaves. Now the prints started to look more like pumpkins.

 

IMG_1771

 

The kids helped me cut out the pumpkins. We cut them to look like the pumpkin print was on an index sized card. Now for one of their favorite parts. Using the hole punch! This always gets my kids excited. They love to make holes with the hole punch. We put a hole in each corner on the “card”. We did this till we had them all finished.

 

IMG_1773

 

Now take the orange yarn and cut a piece long enough to fit the size banner you want. We used 6 pumpkin cards to make our garland/banner. This was the perfect size to hang up on the cabinet. We threaded the yarn through the holes. Now we had a balloon print pumpkin garland to hang up. We used tape and taped each end down on top of the cabinet. The kids love telling anyone that comes over they made it.

Learning about India: The Lotus Temple and Sacred Geometry | Alldonemonkey.com

This month, as we began our study of India with the Global Learning for Kids series, I decided to explore with the boys the beautiful Lotus Temple of New Delhi.

This gorgeous temple, just completed in 1986, is one of the Bahá’í Houses of Worship located throughout the world, the most recent being the one currently under construction in Santiago, Chile.  The Bahá’í temple in India – often called the Lotus Temple – receives on average 8,000 – 10,000 visitors a day and is now one of the most visited buildings in the world.  One recent visitor was the Dalai Lama, who gave a talk on peace and compassion.

Baha'i Temple, India

The Lotus Temple has received a number of architectural awards and been featured in numerous documentaries.  But I was interested in showing the boys the meaning that infuses this beautiful architecture and brings it to life for its many visitors and admirers around the world.

This post contains affiliate links.  If you click through and make a purchase, I receive a small commission.

Sacred Geometry

We started by learning more about the concept of sacred geometry – that is, the idea that buildings can convey a message to us about God.  What does this mean?  First, we had to dive into the concept of symbols – things that stand for something else.  Shapes and images used in architecture can stand for ideas, helping remind us of things that are important.

We reviewed the book Geometry through Architecture: The Chartres Cathedral (a great global STEM book for kids), looking especially at the symbols that were used in the cathedral.  Monkey especially liked the labyrinth built into the floor of cathedral, which encourages introspection and focus as visitors work their way through.

Baha'i Temple, India

Turning back to the Bahá’í temples, they are also full of symbolism.  For example, all have nine doors.  Since nine is the highest single digit, it is a symbol for unity, showing that all people are welcome to worship there.

The Lotus

As for the Bahá’í temple in India, why was the lotus symbol chosen?  What importance does the lotus have in India?

The lotus is an ancient symbol of the divine in India.  It was mentioned in the oldest Veda and features prominently in both Hinduism and Buddhism.  It is a powerful symbol of beauty, purity, and divine birth/everlasting life.  It can also mean detachment from this earthly life, just as the lotus floats above the murky water, maintaining its purity.  It can also represent life, fertility, and prosperity.  The lotus can also symbolize potential, especially spiritual.

Since we learned a bit about origami in our study of Japan last month, I thought it would be fun to make some origami lotus flowers.  They turned about beautifully and were so much fun to make!

Learning about India: The Lotus Temple and Sacred Geometry | Alldonemonkey.com

There are a number of tutorials available online to make really beautiful origami lotus flowers – including this one that really looked like the Lotus Temple! – but most were too complicated for my five year old.  Instead I opted for this simpler tutorial.  The number of steps was just the right length for Monkey, plus it was very easy to follow.  And despite this, our flowers really turned out beautifully!

 May 13, 2015  activities, crafts, Declaration of the Bab Comments Off on Activities to Celebrate the Declaration of the Bab

Activities to Celebrate the Declaration of the Bab | Alldonemonkey.com

The Bahá’í holiday the Declaration of the Báb is coming up next week, so I wanted to share some fun activities we did to celebrate last year.  There are lots of creative ways you can celebrate.  One year we held a play date, complete with storytelling and games, while another year we had a treasure hunt in a park.  This year we did a scavenger hunt and craft, rounded out with some treats!

Scavenger Hunt

In the past we’ve focused on the idea of search, to commemorate Mulla Husayn’s search for the Promised One (the Báb).  To continue this theme, our first activity was a simple scavenger hunt at the park.  Simple is key because the boys were still rather young (4 and 1), and we were at the park, so I knew their attention spans for structured activities would be rather short.

For the items on their list, I threw in some general spring items (flowers, birds), plus others to do with the holy day: Since “the Báb” is an Arabic title meaning “the Gate” I had them look for any gates.  (There were several at this park; if there aren’t any at yours, you could always modify it to include doors).  And since green was a color associated with the Báb (throughout much of Islamic history in Persia, only the descendents of Muhammad, such as the Báb, were allowed to wear green), I also had the boys look for as many green things as they could find.  Not hard to do in a park!

Craft

Following up on the color green, after we got home we did a modified version of this really fun fireworks painting craft from Artsy Momma.

The kids enjoyed the novelty of painting with the pipe cleaners (painting with unusual materials is always a hit!), and their paintings turned out beautifully.

Treat Boxes

And, of course, since it was a holiday, we couldn’t forget the treats!  I found these great treat boxes at the Dollar Tree in the section for wedding showers.  They came flat, which made them easy to decorate, plus Monkey had fun “building” his box once it was done.

And they were just the right size for the pencils, stickers, and lollipops I had gotten for them.  In fact, Monkey’s treat box remained in his room as a holder of miscellaneous treasures for quite some time.

 April 29, 2015  activities, crafts, Ridvan Comments Off on Crown Craft: Celebrating the Ridvan, “King of Festivals”

This post was originally posted as part of the Walking Through the Garden of Ridván series and is reprinted here with permission from the author, Chelsea Lee Smith.

To help think about the meaning and importance of Ridván as the “King of Festivals,” as used in the selection below, our family made crowns.

As to the significance of that Declaration let Bahá’u’lláh Himself reveal to us its import. Acclaiming that historic occasion as the “Most Great Festival,” the “King of Festivals,” the “Festival of God,” He has, in His Kitáb-i-Aqdas, characterized it as the Day whereon “all created things were immersed in the sea of purification,” whilst in one of His specific Tablets, He has referred to it as the Day whereon “the breezes of forgiveness were wafted over the entire creation.” God Passes By

I had some paper ready for the boys to choose colors from, and I had also printed out a page of small nine-pointed stars (found in Google images) for decoration. We sized the cut out crowns to their heads and then they glued on the stars where they wanted them… it was so sweet to see which ones they chose and how they wanted them placed.

Crown Craft: Celebrating the "King of Festivals" {Ridvan} | Alldonemonkey.com

After making the crowns, Zorion said he had something to ask me and he whispered into my ear, “Can we march with our crowns on?” It was too cute. So of course I said yes and, because the marching song that always comes to my mind is “Teaching Peace” by Red Grammar, we started singing and marching. (If you don’t know the song, listen to it and find the lyrics here).

Two Wings of a Bird Craft for Women's History Month | Alldonemonkey.com

The world of humanity is possessed of two wings: the male and the female. So long as these two wings are not equivalent in strength, the bird will not fly.
– ‘Abdu’l-Bahá

Inequality retards not only the advancement of women but the progress of civilization itself.
-“Two Wings of a Bird,” National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of the United States

When thinking about what I wanted to teach my two young boys about Women’s History Month, I remembered a metaphor that I was taught as a child, as part of Bahá’í children’s classes: that women and men are like two wings of a bird.  Both need to be strong in order for the bird to fly.

We have recently been studying about birds, so it was a natural transition for us to do this simple bird craft to talk more about the need for both “wings” of humanity to be strong.

Two Wings of a Bird Craft for Women's History Month | Alldonemonkey.com

First I folded a paper plate in half and drew the outline of a bird.  We then cut it out, and the boys had fun decorating!  (And really, is there a better way to use glitter glue than to dump it on the paper in huge clumps that will probably never dry??)

Their attention span for crafts is relatively short, so I wanted something that could be put together quickly, plus it was easy to fold back one wing and talk about how difficult it would be for the bird to fly like this.

Two Wings of a Bird Craft for Women's History Month | Alldonemonkey.com

I built on the conversations we had around Martin Luther King Day about racial discrimination to talk about how throughout history, women have been prevented from reaching their full potential because of lack of education and opportunities.  I mentioned close friends that are girls.  “Wouldn’t it be awful if M couldn’t become a scientist because she wasn’t allowed to go to school?  Or what if S never got to write wonderful books because she didn’t even know how to read?  Wouldn’t that be terrible for all of us?  We’d never have M’s inventions or get to read S’s stories!”

I also asked Monkey to imagine what it would be like if boys were not allowed to go to school.  Monkey loves to read, so I asked him to think about what he would do if he was never even taught the alphabet.

“I’d just learn it myself!”

“What if nobody gave you books to study?  What if you were punished for trying to learn?”

“I’d just go to the library and check out books myself.”

“What if you couldn’t?  What if the library said No Boys Allowed?”

This then evolved into a long conversation about how as a ninja he would sneak into the library, but hopefully he did get the point about how unfair this situation would be!

My hope is to plant a seed about how terrible discrimination is not just for those discriminated against but for all of us, who are denied the contributions that those people could have made to our society.

Teaching Kids about Generosity | Alldonemonkey.comPhoto via saltedgrace.com

Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of Pine and the Winter Sparrow; however, all opinions are my own.  This post also contains affiliate links.  If you click through and make a purchase, I receive a small commission.

One of the first lessons we did with our character-building class for kids was on generosity.  In some ways, this is an easy lesson for kids to learn, as it is all about giving gifts and sharing toys.  From that basic understanding, you can also stretch them to think in more abstract terms, like giving your time, sharing a smile, and so on.  More to the point, that the best form of generosity is done sincerely, expecting nothing in return.

Teaching Kids about Generosity: Lesson Plan

Explanation

We talked about how generosity is giving to others without expecting anything back.  We asked the kids to come up with ideas for what this might look like, such as giving a gift on someone’s birthday (or just because), or sharing a toy or a snack.  We also talked about how spending time with someone, reading a book together, or playing together, is a gift of time.  And we can also share hugs and smiles with others.

Song

We then sang a song that I grew up with, “Magic Penny” by Malvina Reynolds.  (Here are a video and the full lyrics).  The song is terrific and easy for kids to relate to, about how love is like a magic penny – it only works if you give it away!  The version I grew up singing actually was just the chorus (“It’s just like a magic penny–“) plus variations of the verse about love (“A smile/Time is something if you give it away–“)

Ahead of time I cut out a heart, a smiley face, and a clock from craft foam, and as we sang each corresponding verse, we passed the objects around the circle like a hot potato.  This is nice because it makes it hands on, since otherwise the song can get a little long for restless little ones!

Stories

Pine and the Winter Sparrow

A really beautiful book to share with kids about kindness and generosity is Wisdom Tales Press’s Pine and the Winter Sparrow by Alexis York Lumbard.  Based on a Native American fable, it tells the story of an injured sparrow who cannot fly south for the winter.  All of the other trees turn the little sparrow away, except for the pine tree, who offers the bird shelter for the winter.  Due to this act of generosity, the Creator decided that the pine tree would be rewarded by not losing its leaves in the winter.  And thus it is due to its innate kindness that the pine tree stays green all year long.  Gorgeous book about the importance of sharing what we have and also the need to care for the natural world.  The gentle message and beautiful paintings make this a wonderful book to share with kids.


And of course, you can’t talk about children’s books on generosity without mentioning The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein, a classic book about the selfless nature of giving.


Another great book on generosity is The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister, a beautifully illustrated book about a fish who learns that having something wonderful all to yourself is not nearly as fun as sharing it with others.

Activity

For our activity, we acted out the story of Stone Soup, a popular folk tale about how when everyone shares what they have – no matter how little it may be – we can create something wonderful for everyone.  There are many versions of this tale (here is one), but the general idea is that times are tight, and no one feels like sharing, as they have so little to begin with.  Finally someone decides to make a “delicious” stone soup, and as he starts to cook, one by one people start to add the little food that they have – a cabbage, a carrot, a potato – until they have a wonderful, filling soup that they all can share.

I had asked the children to each bring toy food from home (plus I had extras on hand), so that as I told the story to them, they could each take turns adding “food” to the pot.  This story lends itself very well to acting out, and it’s an easy way for children to practice generosity and see how when we share we can make something better for everyone.

Craft & Service Project

To drive the lesson home, I decided to tie our craft into a service project.  We made these beautiful rainbow vases using pour painting.  (You can also do this using regular garden pots).  I cannot stress how fun this craft is.  The only problem I had was that Monkey got a little too enthusiastic and knocked his vase over as we were working, so try to find vases that won’t break easily!  But not only did the kids have fun, the vases really did turn out beautifully.

And of course they make beautiful gifts!  (Find more gifts that kids can make on my Homemade Gift Ideas Pinterest board).  So in a subsequent class we visited a senior living home and delivered the vases to some of the residents.  We had called ahead to make arrangements, and the activities director was kind enough to meet with us and lead us around to those residents that would most appreciate a visit.  The kids took turns handing out the vases.  Besides generosity, it was good practice for them to be courageous talking to new people and gracious in accepting thanks from them.

Mongolia Craft: Build a Model Ger {Around the World in 12 Dishes} | Alldonemonkey.com

It’s time again for my monthly post for “Around the World in 12 Dishes,” the series in which each month participating bloggers travel the world with their kids by cooking a dish from another country and perhaps reading a book, doing a craft, or learning fun facts about it.

This time we travel to Mongolia, and while we do have a dish to share with you soon, I first wanted to write about our Mongolia craft, building a model ger.

A ger is the traditional dwelling of the mostly nomadic people of Mongolia.  They are common not just in Mongolia but throughout the region (my sister stayed in one in China), and so are more often known by their Russian name, yurt.  You can watch this video to watch an actual ger being built and see how they are used.

Talking about the ger with Monkey was a good way to get him thinking about nomadic life.  First we talked about why moving around frequently would be a good strategy for life on the harsh steppe, where families must move often to find food for their animals.  We then talked about why it would be good to have a house that you could pack and set up again easily.  I could really see the wheels turning in his brain as we talked – even if it did turn out he was applying these principle to space ships.  Hey, that is a great application, when you think about it!

Finally, I made our learning more hands on, so he would really remember the lesson and have fun with it.  First he drew a ger (though of course it had to be caught up in a natural disaster).

Then we made a model ger out of pipe cleaners and felt.  The lattice in a real ger is wooden, but on the scale we were making it, I wasn’t sure that popsicle sticks or toothpicks would work.  Plus they would take forever to glue! Instead I opted to make the lattice out of pipe cleaners. 

It was much easier to do, and it held together well, but it was harder to get the sizes to match – and of course it wasn’t nearly as strong.  Still, I was aiming more for speed and ease, so it was a good choice.

Mongolia Craft: Build a Model Ger {Around the World in 12 Dishes} | Alldonemonkey.com

For the roof, I made a cone out of poster paper and let Monkey decorate.  We used red and blue, since those are the colors of the Mongolian flag. Finally, I wrapped the walls in yellow felt, which nicely showed just how uneven the walls were!  In any case, by this time I was losing my audience, so we skipped making a door.   (He was supposed to have made it while I was working on the lattice but inexplicably ended up cutting up straws instead).

Mongolia Craft: Build a Model Ger {Around the World in 12 Dishes} | Alldonemonkey.com

Almost immediately after, Little Monkey grabbed hold of the ger, crying, “Hat! Hat!”  And so it has passed into their playthings not as a home, as I had envisioned, but as some sort of a helmet.  I will just pretend it is a Mongolian helmet and hope our dish fares better…
