I recently shared with a facebook group, the prayer beads the children made for Ayyam-i-Ha and gave to each Baha’i household. They were made out of glass beads from Micheals and placed in a small bag with “Allah-u-Abha” on the bag. Paper also makes lovely bead and for those of you who love to recycle this is a fun and easy craft.
Crafts don’t have to be expensive and paper is one of my favorite mediums to work with because it helps me to recycle and it is easy on my wallet.
