As the end of the year approaches our kids often have class parties, where they exchange gifts with their friends. Sometimes I send in toys or books. This craft was an Eid/holidays gift for my daughter’s preschool class. I painted one on canvas for each child in her class, inscribing their names in English and Arabic. MashaAllah the kids were fascinated, seeing their name in another language and hopefully will carry happy memories of a Muslim girl and her mommy for many years to come. Many of the parents appreciated the time and said they would display these in their kids rooms. All praise belongs to Allah.
You will need ready made canvas available at Micheals or Aaron Brothers
I used acrylics and distressed glitter glue
First paint the background and let it dry before doing the calligraphy. Be as creative as you want. For some I shaded the background.
