Activity for 2+ years old
Surah ASR talks about how man is at a loss (khusr).
Items needed:
  • 1 cup baking soda (sodium bicarbonate)
  • 1/2 cup citric acid (available at health food stores or online)
  • 2 Tbsp. water (add slowly stop when mixture starts to form)
  • Aromatic essential oil
  • Mica or food colouring (1/8 tsp)

Directions:

1. Mix together the baking soda and citric acid in a medium-sized bowl.

2.In a separate small bowl or bottle, mix together water and essential oil. Slowly add the oil-water mixture a few drops at a time into your dry ingredients, stirring well after each addition (a stand mixer works well for this). When adding the water go very slowly, you may need less depending on the humidity of your kitchen. The consistency should come together as a ball

3. When ingredients are thoroughly mixed, tightly pack into 2-inch balls using your hands, a stainless steel/silicone cake pop mold (we used gingerbread man shape mould from Wilton). Set on a plate to dry.

4. Allow to dry for 12+ hours before using.

5. Use a bucket of water/paddling pool and allow the toddler to throw in their little man, keep explaining how the man just disappeared into the water, they can dip their hands in to try and find their little man, but they won’t explain that is khusr/loss. He’s gone. They can’t get him back.
