Questions about how to use any of the activities in the pack?
Please leave a comment and I'll do my best to answer as soon as possible insha'Allaah.


  1. jazakaAllah. Good work. mashaALlah. I have been wanting to do this activity with my son Nabeel for a while now. But i realized I have to be prepared for his innumerable questions he will have. And SubhanaAllah there is so much I have to learn about honey bees, honey extraction before I start with him! There is a surah on it. And subhanaALlah i dont know much about it. :-( A topic to start on for the parent too :-) Do you know of any good video for kids especially where the whole work of honey bees are demonstrated? jazakaAllah

    1. Assalamu aliakum

      Wa iyaki.
      Jazakillaahu khayr for your comment.

      No, I am not aware of a video that shows what you mentioned. The books mentioned in the post go into a fair amount of detail (for the teacher/parents benefit) and should be helpful when explaining to children insha'Allaah.

      Insha'Allaah you and your son enjoy the pack.
