Arabic Alphabet Coloring Book is Here!

Eight years ago, I printed the Arabic Alphabet Animal Poster and today I’m celebrating the self publishing of the Arabic Alphabet Coloring Book.

 

I always knew the poster would grow into other products to introduce the Arabic language to kids in a colorful, bright, and fun way.

 

Soon I went on to produce magnets and a successful Kickstarter campaign for game cards.

 

I also created the Arabic Colors Animal Poster and today I am excited to announce the debut of the Arabic Alphabet Coloring Book.

 

The new Arabic Alphabet Coloring Book features all 28 animals and their corresponding letter with a sturdy 125# cover. There are also two Arabic alphabet poster images inside, to help with original animal colors.

 

It also has a new coloring book Parent and Teacher Guide to help with each letter.  The paper is made from a 70# paper weight to withstand crayons or markers and each animal is printed on a single page, so there will be no bleed through.

 

Right now it is only available on A Crafty Arab’s Zibbet shop. I will update this page as more places become available.

 

Sign up for the newsletter to get the first three letters for free.

 

If you are in Seattle, a few copies will be sold at the Gates Foundation Holiday Marketplace on November 30th and December 1st. I am donating proceeds from each sale to help a local refugee organization, Salaam Cultural Museum. I will also made them a limited supply of Arabic Christmas Cards.

Shukran (Arabic for thank you) for supporting A Crafty Arab.

50 of the Best Arab T-Shirts for Your Family {Resource}

What better way to celebrate April as Arab American Heritage Month then wearing a T-shirt that shows off your Arab pride and sense of humor?

 

We love to wear T-shirts in our family because we are very active and they are easy to clean. We use them to travel in, garden in, camp in, sleep in and go swimming in sometimes too! We also use them to craft with when we get a chance.

 

In honor of this month, I put togehter a list of Arab themed T-shirts to gift anyone in the family. To make them easy to find, I’ve put them in categories for babies, men and women. I also added T-shirts for those that love Arab food and their country, in all sizes and colors.

 

I hope you are able to find something to make you, and your loved one, smile in any of these 50 choices.
