99 Creative Moon Projects {Resource}

Continuing our 99 Creative Project Series, I thought I’d bring together moon Ramadan projects.

The Islamic calendar is lunar based, so the moon plays a significant roll in the religion.

The crescent moon and star emerged into popular use during the 19th century as a symbol for the Ottoman Empire. It is now on half a dozen country flags.

Over the years, I have made several moon crafts here on the ACraftyArab blog. I have collected them below, along with a few others, so that you can enjoy making some creative moon projects to appreciate our majestic satellite.

I have included images from my crafts, but do not have copyright on other images. For visuals of these tutorials, feel free to visit Crafty Arab 99 Creative Projects.

Happy Earth Day 2015

Happy Earth Day from A Crafty Arab

Happy Earth Day!  I woke up this morning to blue in my sky and was excited that Seattle weather crew were wrong about their predictions.

After a weekly walk at a local park with my walking partner, and another walk when I got home because it was too hard to resist the sunshine, I went outside to garden. My To Do list can wait. Who knows when the free vitamin D will show up again!

I took the photo above by putting my camera on the ground and shooting up.  Just a reminder to stop every once in awhile and notice the tiny details that you might not see from above.

What are you doing today to celebrate Earth Day?

Arabic Coloring Page…Meem is for Ma’ez {Printable}

I’ve been taking the animals from my Arabic Alphabet Animal Poster to turn into a coloring book.

This page is for the letter Meem (mīm) is represented by Muna the Ma’ez, which is how you say goat in Arabic.  Muna is always looking for things that she does not have. 

Other words that use Meem aremumtaz (excellent), meraab (garage), and mustateel (rectangle).

You can also enjoy these past animals that have been done already –
