I haven't been posting for nearly 2 months due to health reasons. Bi ithnillah I will start posting and updating as much as I can from now on.
As I mentioned earlier, Yusuf loves masjids and everything involving masjids, whether it be going to the masjid, drawing one or building it. Everyday we draw and build masjids, AbuYusuf takes us to the masjids too, alhamdulillah.
As a mom you always look for ideas on how to keep your little one busy.
I saw this idea on the internet where you need popsicle sticks and empty container to keep you toddler busy for a little while. The child pops the sticks through the holes into the container, it makes noise when the stick slides in and the container makes noise when you shake it and toddlers seem to love that noise. I found an empty container just the right size and made 3 holes on the lid using knife and some fire.
Yusuf liked the idea for the first few days, but now he just shakes the whole container with the pop sticks upside down to get all of the pop sticks out and asks me to build him a masjid. He first tries to do it himself, he gets upset because he can't get the pop sticks lining right and then calls me up. I know he is too young to get it right. But alhamdulillah he is trying to do other things that I have shown him with the pop sticks and making some progress.
Below are some of the masjids we have build with the pop sticks:
