This little mini-book was made with a lot of love by Auntie Lili Shang 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.
Visit our website here to download the whole issue for the month of Qudrat (Power).
Instructions - Watch a video of how to make the pages here.
We were so inspired by the prayer booklet created by Delighted-Hearts last month and the many friends' service to support children's spiritual education programs. (They also have a wonderful coloring page for the Twin Holy Birthdays which can be downloaded here.)
We love to take the craft project with us on home visits. We bring along a stapler, some glue sticks and some printed out copies of the the two pages. And then we make the book with children while talking with them and their parents. Then we read it out loud together.
We also can't wait to share it with guests at the upcoming Holy Day events - at an arts and crafts table set up for children. A little keepsake for them. A mini-book to read again and again - that they color.
For more children's spiritual education activities please visit the official Bahá'í website. And visit a new site called Supporting the Core Activities to see so many beautiful materials compiled. And there are very useful children's class, junior youth and other invitation templates, Feast programs, and more on the Bahai-Ideas.site.
These materials are free gifts to support community building; for parents, children's class teachers, and more; supportive for engaging children in the study of Holy Writings before, during and after the 19 Day Feast.
Wishing you a very happy Birth of The Báb and Birth of Bahá'u'lláh!
With lots of love,
