Ayyam-i-Ha Homemade Gift Ideas

I have been enjoying creating different gifts for friends and neighbours in the last few days for the festival of Ayyam-i-Ha and thought I would share a few of them with you (as some friends have been asking how to make these).  To learn how to make each of them, click on the title which has a link with directions.

I would also like to share an Ayyam-i-Ha song that I composed specially for this occasion. I hope you have fun singing it together with friends and family.  To download the instrumental version, click here.

Also, here is an Ayyam-i-Ha video (created by my friend Glenn Franco Simmons) portraying different communities around the world from Cochabamba, Bolivia to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.
Happy Ayyam-i-Ha!
