Educator and creative, Liha B, hopes to share her creative energy to inspire future generations. The blank mosque-shaped cookies will be sold in the museum as a take home kit. These kits are meant for children to use their imagination to create their own Mosque and ultimately instill a sense of pride and confidence in their creative abilities. This Masjid Al-Sugar Cookie is an interactive way for families to come together and create memories. Find out more about Liha B and her Masjid Al-Sugar Cookie Kits at:
