    Oh that is a shame, I will probably make it and hand wash it then, and once it starts to fade just touch it up in sha Allah. Thanks for the heads up.

    please do share whenever you get down to it :)

For example: Green is Qur'an, Blue is Ahadeeth, Pink is Sunnah, etc. (Whatever you want). So on the Green I wrote an Ayat, on the Blue I wrote a short Hadith, and on the Pink I could write for example, "Dust off the bed 3 times before sleeping", a very simple Sunnah that is easy to follow every day. And so on the front of the jar I labeled what each colour was. And then folded up the pieces of paper so each day you can pick one out. I think it would also be a neat project for your kiddo.



    Like this kind of. (not my photo)

    By the way, what are you making?
    this is nice mashallah, so beneficial

    i am making an activity and sensory board for my lil one, nothing grand, just something to keep him busy and entertained

    I actually did do a DIY project during the summer.....I bought black chalk paint and made a blackboard for my baby......
    I have done that before! But I found that it didn't come out well.. Maybe I did it wrong. The best DIY in my opinion is painting rooms. I quite enjoy it.

    Seems pretty simple, with some wheels on the bottom so you can roll it in and out. It would be handy to study or read in bed.

    Well the idea above is good and simple... ^
    But I mean making something from scratch.. I mean I've made a jewellery box, and food tray, and dvd storage rack if they count. But that was GCSE Design technology lol!
    Like sis shay said, if you wanna, share some pics :) would be nice to get inspiration
