DIY muslim dolls is a good project for older kids. Moms can make them for younger kids, they are great for pretend play and very easy to make, mashaAllah.
Recently I was after some islamic crafts and I started searching on google and I came across felt muslim doll tutorial. The idea belongs to sister Karima, may Allah reward her for the simple and yet brilliant idea and for the tutorial. Here is the link for the felt muslim doll and prayer mat tutorial by sister Karima:
I didn't spend much time doing the dolls, hence they are not too good looking. Didn't do my measurements right, but my son is happy with the outcome, alhamdulillah. He took them away as soon as they were ready and started playing with them.
After I made felt muslim girl, I had to make a muslim boy right away, as requested by my son.
