Allah Helps Me Grow Hand-print {Tutorial}

ACraftyArab Allah helps me grown handprintAllah is the Arabic word referring to God in the Abrahamic religions of Christianity, Islam and Judaism.


In Arabic, Allah is composed of four letters, ا ل ل ه (or Alif Lam Lam Ha, from right to left), which when brought together make الله.


When written in English, Allah has five letters, using A L L A H, written left to right.  Today my youngest made this adorable flower pot with her five fingers to write Allah in English.


We are going to place it in a frame and send it to her grandmother as a gift. She wanted to share the steps with other small children so they can try it themselves.

I helped my youngest write out the words “Allah helps me grow” and she went over them with a Sharpie to make them thicker and darker. You can get a grown up to help you with this, or do it yourself.ACraftyArab Allah helps me grown handprint7

Grab your double sided tape and place it on the back of the hand and then place it on a beige piece of cardstock. Tape and add your flower pot on top.

Place double sided tape on five of the hearts and arrange them into a circle shape to create a flower.  Add the small circle center to each flower.
