99 Creative Star Projects

The Arab fascination with stars began about the 9th century, when the first observatory was built in Iraq.  An observatory is a structure that houses tools to allow astronomers to study the universe around us.  While the Arabs were not the first to study the planets, sun, moon and everything else, they were the first to do it in an observartory with large intsturments as a team solving scientific projects.


Many people don’t know that the original names for the stars were Arabic because so many were discovered and named by Arab astronomers. For example, some of the stars in the constellation Big Dipper, came originally from Arabic names.  The stars are known as al-Qa’id (Alkaid), Mi’zar (Mizar), al-Hawar (Alioth), Maghraz (Megrez), Fakhdha (Phecda), Marzqq (Merak) and Dub (Dubhe).


One of the other places that stars are most seen is in the crescent moon and star symbol on Arab flags.  The crescent moon and star were used in the flag of the Ottoman Empire in the 19th century. This lead to its acquired popular interpretation as a symbol of Islam that started forming in the 20th century.


Here on A Crafty Arab blog, my daughters and I love to making star crafts and have done quite a few.   I thought it might be a good time to compile a list of all the Eid craft tutorials we’ve done here, plus a few more from some of our crafting friends over at Kid Blogging Network.


If the images came from my blog, I am able to include a photo, if a craft came from another blog, please click on the link to see it as I do not have permission to post those photos.
