DIY Herbal Windchimes

Herbal Windchimes 




We love herbs and our family has been learning and working with them a lot.  Have you been to our herbal shop online? MashaAllah alhamdulilah it's pretty awesome!!!
Here: http://teamrahimherbals.storenvy.com


Our older three boys (8,7, and 5) have been extra interested and very involved in making Salves, lip balm and more. Homeschooling has consisted of herbal knowledge and let's just say… it's been a hit in our home. I really want the children to learn and pass on this wonderful knowledge along with learning Qur'an and duaas ... Spiritual healing and physical and emotional healing are all connected and if one area suffers it effects the others.



Not only do we love herbs we also love canning our homemade jellies and jam. We have so many mason jar rings that they came in handy for our herbal windchimes. Beautiful smells of chamomile and lavender with beautiful yellow dandelions and golden calendula graced our chimes… fresh green plantain, leaves from yellow wood sorrel and mint made this an aromatherapy and artsy experience.

The children smelled their windchimes as they sprinkled herbs and talked about the different healing properties of the herbs we used. Chamomile and lavender for relaxation, yarrow for nosebleeds, plantain for mosquito bites and calendula for skin etc 


Light breeze makes them clink and memories are blown in our minds and settled in our hearts.

To make this
Use various herbs
Yarn
Sticks
Different size jar rings
Contact paper


Put the rings on the contact paper and trace them
Have your child place the herbs in the circles and then cut them out and place the contact paper in the rings tie string to it and tie to the stick.
At the end use a big string to tie to each end of the stick so it can be hung up outside or inside as wall decoration.

Noor Box Rocks!

SubhanAllah I happen to be on Facebook and I saw this page called Noor Box ! I was instantly in love with this awesome educational tool! This month the theme is the bee!! Our son T2 is known as The Bee and loves to learn about bees Alhamdulilah We received our bee theme Noor Box and needless to say, there were excited faces (not including sleeping T5- who missed the action)

The children and I talked about what is responsibility and how we can bee more responsible at home and the masjid. Each child took a turn writing on the chart on what they can do. Also in their box there was stickers they could place on the flowers for every responsible thing they do each day. MashaAllah Alhamdulilah my children rushed towards doing responsible task and I was truly impressed!
 Just a side note, if you have more than one child you can purchase a sibling kit for 8.00 Alhamdulilah.

What's in the Noor Box?

"Each month your child will receive a box filled with projects, activities, and / or stories relating to Islamic values and virtues.

The themes of the boxes are based on four subject areas- Art, Nature, Heritage, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). 

Inside every box will be at least two activities around the particular theme of the month with supplies to complete each activity. 
Other supplemental activities will be suggested to carry the theme further. In addition, there will be a monthly virtue included in each box supported by verses from the Quran and Hadith. 
The child will learn about the virtue and ways of incorporating it into his or her daily life."- Noor Box Website 

The children loved going on a scavenger hunt, the kit supplied even cool sunglasses and magnifying glass.

A great way to encourage team work They worked together to find all the items on the check list and took turns reading the list.  I really loved seeing their excitement and screams as they filled their bag! 

I love that we were provided with seeds for planting to help with nectar and pollinating. 
Also honey sticks and two little candies were well received!  

I would love for everyone to get their box!! Deadline to order for this months box is August 12th!!! Also they have a special going on through the 12th- 15% off of a 3 month subscription using code BEE15 during checkout at www.noorbox.net !!!! Mention me and we both get 10.00 credit InshaAllah! Which really helps when you want to order a sibling kit mashaAllah.

Seriously a great addition to your educational tools, whether you are homeschooling or not mashaAllah. Its really fun. My children will definitely want next month's box.

What can I say...
Noor Box Rocks!!!!
