This is my daughter, Samira’s lapbook all about wudhu. I was inspired to make this lapbook with her after seeing Umm Abdul Basir’s Wudhu Lapbook, masha’Allah.
This is what the contents of the lapbook looks like when it’s opened out.
This is a little pocket that holds a set of cards that show the sequence of wudhu.
I printed these cards and my daughter coloured them in. She plays with them to put them in order to learn the sequence for making wudhu. You can download a printable template for these cards courtesy of Umm Abdul Basir, may Allah reward her, ameen. You can find the template here.
This is a nice little colouring page that my daughter coloured. I cut it out in parts and glued it into her lapbook and added the title to show that “After Wudhu We Pray.” If you like this colouring page, you can download it here.
I then made a little mini-book for my daughter all about Tayammum.
We included some pictures which were taken from Umm Abdul Basir’s template on Tayamumm which you can find here.
We talked about what Allah told us in the Qur’an about Wudhu and I found the verse to add to the lapbook.
We glued the verse down into the lapbook and I googled a Qur’an front cover image and printed it. I cut it out and we taped it down oneside so that the flap opens like opening the Qur’an itself.
Bearing in mind my daughter’s tender age, I only took what was necessary from this verse so that she could understand what was mentioned with regards to how we should make wudhu and how we should make Tayammum.
Both my elder two children know that going to the toilet breaks wudhu and that they must renew their wudhu before they can pray. But I wanted to make it absolutely clear to them that they can’t just make wudhu after using the toilet without first doing istinjaa (washing one’s self after urinating or defacating). So I decided to make a little mini book on this subject too.
Next we looked at some of the things that nullify wudhu.
I got the idea for this circle book based on Umm Abdul Basir’s template which you can find here.
Then we put together a flap book that shows the seven steps for making wudhu.
If you would like the template for this flap book you can find it here.
Finally we made this wonderful Wudhu Jigsaw Puzzle. You can get the template for this puzzle here.
I printed off the template for my daughter to colour then we glued it down onto the side of a cereal box to make it sturdier and cut it out into the separate puzzle pieces.
