How to Make a Mosque From a Cardboard Box

Save

A mosque is a house of worship for followers of Islam. Making a mosque out of a cardboard box lets you teach your children about religion in a hands-on way. This is the perfect project for a rainy afternoon.

Things You'll Need

  • Cardboard box
  • Four cardboard rolls from toilet paper or paper towels
  • Four ice-cream cones
  • One large paper bowl
  • Gold-colored or aluminum foil
  • Glue
  • Markers, crayons or paint
  • Newspaper
  • Understand what a mosque looks like. There are many architectural traditions, but the mosque you will create is based on the Abuja National Mosque in Nigeria.

  • Set the cardboard box upside-down so it opens to the floor. Draw or paint windows and entryways on the box and on the cardboard rolls. Mosque windows tend to be rectangular or archlike.

  • Glue a cardboard roll vertically at each corner of the box. Glue an ice-cream cone with the point up to the top of the cardboard rolls.

  • Cover the paper bowl with foil. Glue the rim to the center of the cardboard box.

  • Embellish the mosque otherwise as desired.
