Heritage blog1

As I mentioned in two of my previous posts, I have no direct relationship with the actual Heritage month since it is mainly honoured in the USA. However, I can absolutely relate to it granted our family’s diverse cultural background, and the fact, that part of our family lives in the United States and Guyana.

I think such heritage months should already become international since the United States itself has a very complex diverse population, that includes so many ethnic background from around the world!

Ridvan Coloring Pages for Kids

Happy Ridvan

It is that time of the year again where Baha’is around the world are getting ready for a very important festival – Ridvan. It lasts 12 days and three of those days are especially commemorated.

Once again we pair up with Leanna of All Done Monkey to bring you something exciting for these Holy Days!

Today I am trying my hand at hand-drawn Ridvan printable coloring pages for children. And Leanna – at adult colouring pages.

I have included in the document below 3 printable pages which include a very very simple image and a quote for each image.

Don’t judge me too harsh! I hope you like the idea of how I see these quotes manifested. Plus, the drawings are so easy, that your child can try his/her hand at replicating the drawings as well!

I have also chosen a font that allows children to color the letters in the quotes, if they like.

Let me know what you think. Meanwhile, I’ll be working more on my drawing skills together with my children!

To get to the pages, click on the image below!

Happy Ridvan to everyone who celebrates!

I would also like to take a moment and summer up all the post I have so far shared with you for this wonderful Festival! Living in China and avoiding Chinese New Year is pretty much impossible. But even then – besides the crazy fireworks – who wants to avoid it??? It is so beautiful and brings people together!
