Inspire children with the gift of making du`a' to God (supplication) by recycling a jar into a wishing well. A great Ramadan craft project and eco-mosque workshop. Here's how to make yours.



You will need:
  • An empty coffee jar with its lid, washed out
  • Coloured tissue paper and crepe paper
  • Ribbons and sequins
  • Jewellery wire
  • Glass beads
  • Flat-back gems and anything else you find in your 'nik naks' draws
  • Alphabet letters

Tip: Try different shaped (clean) containers to make multiple Dua Jars like plastic CD holders, card tea-leaf boxes and muffin trays. Rummage your recycling bins for ideas.


How To Make Your Jar Of Duas
  1. Glue strips of tissue paper on the outside of the jar.
  2. Add a band of paper across the middle, which will be the background for the title.
  3. Tie ribbons near the opening and string beads onto wire to wrap around the jar.
  4. Glue alphabet letters on the front - 'Dua Jar' or cut out from cardstock.
  5. Decorate with gems.
  6. Finally, hand out the 'My Dua' sheets to children on which they will write their special du`a', roll up and place in the Dua Jar. Why not get your students to write a du`a' for each day of Ramadan?
