Mini-Book in Honor of the Twin Holy Days

This little mini-book was made in honor of the upcoming Twin Holy Days - the Birth of The Báb (starts at sunset on November 8th this year) and Birth of Bahá'u'lláh (starts the next evening, at sunset on November 9th). You can download it here.

 Thank you so much for these resources! It was a hit at our community feast. The children whose ages ranged from almost 2 to 10.5 loved it!

Dear friends Allahuabha, These feast pages will be extremely beneficial in Brazil where I live. I would like to know if there is the possibility of adaptation/ translation to Portuguese so that they can be used in the Brazilian Bahá’í community? I myself can do all the translations...Thank you so much for all your hard work and making these valuable resources available for all.

Happy Naw Ruz to you all amazing and dedicated friends at Mine Rich in Gems.  We also just used some of these creative ideas at our children classes today where we held an hour of Naw Ruz celebration and they were absolute hit.  I myself was very proud of my Peacock fruit platter  May you all be blessed by Baha'u'llah in everything you do. Keep up the good work and just know that it is all very much appreciated. With loving regards,

Friends in Victoria, Australia

I printed them for our grandson.  We are a community of two but four nearby Baha'is join together for feast and our grandchildren are the only children. I think these pages are as much for the adults as the children! They are wonderful and I am very grateful for them! Thank you so much!

Friends in Ohio, USA

Forwarded it to many friends! 💝 Thank you so much! 😊  Sent it around the world and getting awesome comments about your wonderful initiative. To name a few countries where people are very appreciative and grateful: New Caledonia, France, Mauritius, Belgium, Kenya, Vietnam, Australia, Belize, Germany, Hawaii, Canada, Kashmir, Honduras, Bolivia, Japan, Vanuatu, Central African Republic, Guam, and several people from different States. Some people share their challenges about incorporating activities for children at Feast and other events. Keep up the wonderful work!

[A]s a community with a lot of children, we've been having a conversation for YEARS about the fact that we need some kind of program for the kids during the consultative portion of Feast instead of just letting them play, but it's never really happened because none of us seems to have the bandwidth to figure out what to do with all of them. So these Feast pages are seriously an answer to our prayers!

Friends in California, USA

I just wanted to say that we used some of your Naw Ruz printable activities last night at our party and they were a huge hit! I am so appreciative of your feast packets and think it's wonderful that you put a donation button on the page and I will be donating! Many people asked for the link and I'm so glad that you put it right on the printables so that we can all access your wonderful materials. Thanks again!

Friends in Connecticut, USA

Dear Friends,
Thank you for this precious gift!  I cannot express how grateful I am for your beautiful Feast pages.  And the Twin Holy Birthday booklet is lovely and will be so useful in our children’s class.
You are providing a great service and I appreciate all you do.
With love
