Kul ‘am wa antum bikhair is an Arabic greeting said to welcome in a new year. It means May You Welcome Every Year with Good Health and is written like this
كل عام و انتم بخير
It can be said once a Gregorian or Hijri Islamic calendar begins. It is also said to someone at their birthday.
Last year, I created a Kul ‘am wa antum bikhair coloring page for kids and this year I took that same design and put it on a party hat.
Simply print it out on sturdy card stock and color it in.
Then cut out the solid lines and add adhesive along the flap past the dotted line.
Next, attach the flap to the rest of the hat in a cone shape, and punch holes on the sides for the string.
Finally attach string to the sides.
Now your Arabic New Years party hat is ready to wear at your next gathering. Print out as many as you’d like for your own personal use.
To download the hat, just sign up for the ACraftyArab newsletter to find out when blog posts come out. I promise there is no spamming and I don’t share my list. I just want to make sure you know when more fun downloads, tutorials and activities are available to teach about the Arab world.
