Arabic Alphabet Card App is Here {Resource}

I’m so excited to announce the Arabic Alphabet Animal App is now available for FREE download.


It’s official. A Crafty Arab is now a mom and pop operation!


My husband came to me two months ago and asked if I’d ever considered putting my Arabic Alphabet Animal Game Cards on an app.


“Of course,” I said. “It’s been a dream, but I have no money to hire a developer to make it for me.”


“I’ll try it,” he said and headed to our local library to research how.   And I fell in love with him all over again.


Now it’s live. Something that has been a goal for so long is physically in my daughter’s hands.  It’s beautiful to see the power of dua’a (prayer in Arabic) become a reality.


It’s design is simple and easy to use for little hands. It will hopefully entertain your kids and introduce them visually to the Arabic alphabet.


Download Arabic Alphabet Cards for free here.


If you are “old school” and would rather have your child hold the originals, be sure to check out the Arabic Alphabet Animal Game Cards on Amazon, and Zibbet.


You can also purchase the Arabic Alphabet Animal Poster, Arabic Alphabet Magnets and sign up for our mailing list to receive your free Arabic Alphabet Animal Coloring Pages.


We also recently released the Arabic Color Poster:

ACraftyArab Arabic Colors Poster.


Stay tuned for the Arabic Alphabet Animal Coloring Book coming out next. Plus the designs for the Arabic Shapes Poster and Arabic Numbers Poster have already been started.  If you are a retailer, A Crafty Arab will also be offering an affiliate program in the fall.


And who knows what my husband still has up his sleeve! Watch out world, he’s gone back to the library.

Ramadan Crafts Challenge 2016 Roundup {Resource}

ACraftyArab 2016 CraftyRamadan Collage

When I was looking for Ramadan crafts to make back in July 2011, there were no books, websites or Pinterest to help me teach my daughters. So we created the series to met our heritage and cultural needs.

As an Arab artist, I had the resources to create crafts with them in my studio, at the same time spending time with them individually talking about Islam, Ramadan and my childhood memories of family.  Our tradition has continued annually through 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015.

Eid Step Card {Tutorial}

Eid Mubarak! That means Blessed Eid in Arabic. Tomorrow is Eid Al Fitr, the holiday to celebrate the conclusion of the month of Ramadan.


For our Ramadan crafts 30 day challenge tutorial today, I made a handmade step card. I would rate this as an adult craft since there is a lot of measuring and folding.



12×12 cardstock
Chipboard letters
Corner punch
Double sided tape
Decorative paper
Fabric flower and brad
3D butterfly sticker

ACraftyArab Eid Step Card1

I used the tutorial here to cut the card.

ACraftyArab Eid Step Card2

I used the corner punch to round out the edges.

ACraftyArab Eid Step Card3

I cut the decorative paper to fit inside the blank areas of the card. I rounded out the edges of all the paper before adding it on with double sided tape.

ACraftyArab Eid Step Card4

I added a 3d butterfly to the lower area of the card.

ACraftyArab Eid Step Card8

I layered the four fabric flowers and attached to each other with a brad. I added a stem and grass to the right side of the card.

ACraftyArab Eid Step Card7

I didn’t like how the chipboard letters were white, so I used chalk ink to make them gold.

ACraftyArab Eid Step Card5

After all three letters were done, I added them to the card on the “steps”.

ACraftyArab Eid Step Card6


I can later add a white piece of paper to the right side to write my personal note. My card was ready to fold and mail.


I just realized I forgot to take a photo of the card closed, so I’ll have to do it sometime during the day.


I had so much fun making that step card, I made another. This one says Eid Mubarak in Arabic.

ACraftyArab Eid Step Card9


Here is a closeup. Be sure to follow A Crafty Arab Facebook page where I’ll be giving it away for free.
