Last year, we created some wonderful cards to give to friends for Nawruz – Baha’i New Year. I have never described the process so I decided with the 2 upcoming Baha’i Holidays – Birthdays of The Bab and Baha’u'llah, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hannukah, and New Year. This would be a nice personalized way of greeting people.
The process is very very simple – we use finger painting here, choose the pattern and then let our imagination flow.
For the Baha’i themed cards, last year we traced 9-pointed stars on the inside. The same can be done for any relevant holiday.
What you need:
A card cut out of paper (we used construction color paper)
Any type of paints you like (we used Crayola Washable Paints)
How to do it:
Choose a pattern. Show your child how to finger paint it and let his/her imagination flow!
Our cards came out so pretty, I think I still have 1 or 2 somewhere left!
