Pomegranate Painting Craft - 30 Day Craft Challenge

Pomegranate Painting Craft - 30 Day Craft Challenge
Download colouring page here

Salam and welcome to the halfway point of our challenge! We're at Day 15 now and I'm super excited to share what we did today. We focused on the pomegranate today. I talked to the kids about the fact that it has been mentioned several times in the Quran. We also talked about the nutritional benefits of it and that eating pomegranate seeds regularly will keep us healthy and strong!

I designed a colouring page for them and we looked at the word  رمان in the Quran. We also talked about how to pronounce pomegranate in Arabic as seen in the Quran. Once we had our discussion, we tried painting with actual pomegranate seeds and saw how the colour appears on paper. We talked about how this was the method artists used before man-made paints were invented - they were quite fascinated!

Edited to add: No pomegranate seeds were wasted in this experiment - mama volunteered to eat the used seeds!
