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.

2018 Ramadan Crafts 30 Day Challenge Roundup {Resource}

Eid Mubarak 2018!

 

That is an Arabic greeting that is used worldwide today to mean Blessed Eid.  Muslims are sharing it as they celebrate Eid Al Fitr, the three day festival that ends the month of Ramadan.

 

For the past 30 days, my daughters and I have made Ramadan crafts to teach about our Arab culture and Islamic religion. This 8th annual tradition had a few adjustments this year as I shared a few crafts for adults and downloads.   I didn’t want to add the pressure of daily crafting as my two oldest daughters had high school finals. My youngest also enjoyed the extra time togehter.

 

Our family started this tradition in July 2011, when I was looking for Ramadan crafts to help me teach my daughters. Our tradition has continued annually through 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017.

 

We hope you learned something new from our activities and will enjoy this list of all of them together:
