Ramadan Activity 9: Weaved Prayer Rug

4:03 PM

I have seen lot activity and crafts on how to make prayer rug. So this is what we did with our prayer rug.

Cut two different color paper into long strips.

Lay the strips on a flat surface and stick them on to the surface with a tape, so the strips wont move around when weaving.

Take one paper strip and weave it horizontally across the layed down strip, going over and under the strips. The second strip should be woven in an opposite pattern as the first.

Lil princess had fun weaving and also following the pattern.

Weave paper strips in an alternating pattern until your paper weave is full.Flip the whole square weave. Apply glue at the ends of each paper strip.

We then added fringed paper strip to the both ends to give it a rug look. With IKEA stamp pens, lil princess applied a variety of designs onto it :).
