2010 Colouring Calendar

Assalamu alaikum,

I'm happy over here alhamdulillah! I made you all something - a small gift from me to you insha'Allah (smile). Well, it's a gift for your children and your household insha'Allah. It's a 2010 Calendar that your children can colour and then you can hang it up or send it off to family as a gift insha'Allah (I'm working on a hijri calendar too insha'Allah).

So this is a small gift from me to you insha'Allah. It cost me about $3.00 to get the coil binding on it. This version (pictured) does not print front and back (I'm going to work on designing one that does to save paper insha'Allah). In the meantime, please enjoy this calendar insha'Allah.


I forgot to mention: there are many ways that your child can decorate the calendar (i.e. colour the pictures) insha'Allah:
  • make or buy sparkle paint and allow your child to paint the pictures insha'Allah
  • use liquid glue to fill the inside of the picture (i.e. spread it around the inside of the picture) and invite your child to use different colour sand to colour the picture (if you do this you will need to print your calendar on fairly thick paper insha'Allah)
  • for different texture (visually), invite your child to dip a cotton ball into the paint to paint the picture (you will need a separate cotton ball for each colour paint insha'Allah)
  • place a piece of sandpaper under the picture you child is going to colour and invite him/her to colour the picture insha'Allah. The sandpaper gives the picture a different look that many children enjoy. *Allow your child to do a test page on a piece of scratch paper just in case he/she is not among the children that like colouring on sandpaper*
Enjoy insha'Allah!

  1. As Salaamu Alaykum, Awww so cute! I now have one for the little kids to color insha Allah. Putting the finishing touches on the one we started a couple months ago and will post insha Allah. We decided to release it during the month of Dhul Hijjah insha Allah so that is why it took so long. *smile*

    Aww dear sis Nakia, jazakillahu khayr (smile) but subhana'Allah it is from Allah Alone. I only hope that the little I do is accepted by Allah and is a source of benefit for the Muslimeen. And I doubt anything I do leaves anyone in the dust....hehehe. Jazakillahu Khayr for your kind words dear sis.
