Testimonials

 Thank you so much for these resources! It was a hit at our community feast. The children whose ages ranged from almost 2 to 10.5 loved it!

New Zealand

I am on a children's feast committee (and member of the LSA). Your pages are fantastic! ... Thank you so much for your service!

USA

I missed out on all this kind of fun stuff when I was a child but it’s never too late! I’m gonna attempt this puzzle myself! It’ll be wonderful to print out and share.

USA

I love this! Thank you so much! Time to print and share with our little ones! Hugs

Hong Kong

Thank you! I am new to the faith and am not leading a class. I have a three year old but need to learn the basics myself. Thank you.

USA

Allah’u’abha... a friend shared your website with me right before feast and thank goodness your feast activity booklet was a success everyone loved it even the adults.

USA

This is a wonderful place to get some GREAT Feast resources for the children in your community.

USA

I download your Feast pages every time to give to our junior youth, and feel I should give back. Please let me know. I have donated to Tahirih Justice Center for my birthday, and I’d like to help you with your projects.

USA

Thank you very much for sharing these wonderful pages. It's very creative and inspires us a lot.

I am using the Lionhearts series to supplement and/or add to the Ruhi Book 3, Grade 3 lessons on The Báb. ...Thank you for all the work you and your team put into this - magical! Will send a pic of the finished teapots and anything else I do so that you may see.

Australia

We find this as a way of including our children in the Feast, rather than taking turns doing something else with them during the administrative part. And we anticipate the junior youth being able to help them. Eagerly anticipating the next pages...

USA

I used one of the lessons ...for this feast and it worked so well and the children loved it. I took some time off to go and do the activities with them in the feast and for one of the activities, we made it like a skit and presented it. It was very very useful and every one enjoyed, parents and children. Thank you very much for putting on so much effort... it's really beautiful. 

India

I am always grateful for all those wonderful Bahá'ís all over the world who share their talents and creations with the rest of the world family. ...Your Lionhearted issues are wonderful!! I know this must take a lot of time to prepare! Thank you so much for making this available for moms like me that don't have the time to put together nice materials like this one!

Luxembourg

Love this idea! Want to provide these booklets to the children in our cluster as a gift from our Feast Committee and their LSA. This helps the children and their parents, too, learn about the importance of the 19 Day Feast! Thank you! Delivering the workbooks through home visits is an interesting idea.  

USA

The children have enjoyed many of the activities. I have tried the new one (tilting teapot) as a practise to show the children (usually do this) and found that I printed a teapot and it's reverse on card, glued that to a small paper plate (not the handles), then cut it out and stapled onto a larger folded paper plate that the children will have a 2-sided teapot. Here in Oz the shops are not selling the paper plates (unless heavy Chinet ones which I used), but are becoming more involved with bamboo plates

Australia

Love this. Thanks for sharing! 😍

USA

[A]s a community with a lot of children, we've been having a conversation for YEARS about the fact that we need some kind of program for the kids during the consultative portion of Feast instead of just letting them play, but it's never really happened because none of us seems to have the bandwidth to figure out what to do with all of them. So these Feast pages are seriously an answer to our prayers!

USA

We used this at our Feast on Sunday ... and had a blast!  Was great to have stuff for various ages. Thanks so much!

USA

Happy Naw Ruz to you all amazing and dedicated friends at Mine Rich in Gems.  We also just used some of these creative ideas at our children classes today where we held an hour of Naw Ruz celebration and they were absolute hit.  I myself was very proud of my Peacock fruit platter  May you all be blessed by Baha'u'llah in everything you do. Keep up the good work and just know that it is all very much appreciated. With loving regards,

Australia (Victoria)

Dear friends Allahuabha, These feast pages will be extremely beneficial in Brazil where I live. I would like to know if there is the possibility of adaptation/ translation to Portuguese so that they can be used in the Brazilian Bahá’í community? I myself can do all the translations...Thank you so much for all your hard work and making these valuable resources available for all.

I just wanted to say that we used some of your Naw Ruz printable activities last night at our party and they were a huge hit! I am so appreciative of your feast packets and think it's wonderful that you put a donation button on the page and I will be donating!

I printed them for our grandson.  We are a community of two but four nearby Baha'is join together for feast and our grandchildren are the only children. I think these pages are as much for the adults as the children! They are wonderful and I am very grateful for them! Thank you so much!

I am so impressed and attracted to your production. I would like to share that I have sent your production to be used by friends in Malaysia, it amazed me so much that I wanted children to benefit from it.
