Ramadan Crafts

Here are a few easy craft ideas to help your children get a good taste of Ramadan and to help create lasting memories…and maybe even start a new Ramadan tradition, insha’Allah.

 RAMADAN CALENDARS

The small calendars above were  made using  1/2 sheet card stock,  reinforcement  labels, star stickers, heart punch, glue stick, ribbon/ yarn for hanging and print outs of “Ramadan” “MTWTF” and the following Quran verse :

“O you who believe! Observing As-Sawm (the fasting) is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become Al-Muttaqoon (the pious)” (Al-Baqarah- 183)

As each day finishes color in the circle or peel it off.

This calendar was made with printed card stock, circle punch,  adhesive letters and glue stick.

  RAMADAN LANTERNS

                   

The supplies needed for these “lanterns:  LED Tap Lights,  sheet protectors, colored tissue paper, star stickers, Elmer’s glue, tape, marker.

Cut sheet protector to fit the LED light and the desired height..glue on torn or cut  tissue paper pieces, add stickers and writing if desired When dry wrap around LED light and fasten with tape . Reach hand down into “lantern” and tap it on.

RAMADAN GIFT BOXES/BAGS:

Decorate gift boxes and bags (found in any craft store) with markers, sparkle foam, letters, stamps, cutouts etc., add a ribbon and and a tag with a greeting. I like UmmLayla’s:

‘Right now Muslims all over the world are celebrating the month of Ramadan. You may know that it is a time of fasting…” found here.

Fill boxes/bags with candy, cookies or dates and give to your neighbor.

Calendars made be Iman 6, Noor 4 and Maryam 2.  Ramadan gift boxes/bags made by Aisha 7.

    MashaAllah some wonderful ideas :) What I did with my children last Ramadan was cut out a good deeds tree out of cardboard and prop it up on the wall. Then we got together and cut out approximately 30 leaves, one for each day of Ramadan. So when Ramadan began, they would write down one good deed they did for the sake of Allah in the spirit of Ramadan on their leaf, colour it, decorate it and stick it up on their tree. By the end of Ramadan we had a colourful tree in full bloom. :) This Ramadan I decided to concentrate more on Salah as my daughter just turned 6 and I felt that now would be a good time to introduce it to her, teach her the duat etc so she can practice and get into the rhythm of it all and hopefully make it habitual by the time she turns 7 inshaAllah. We’ve Alhamdulilah finished learning all the duat that are recited in Salah, and soon I plan on making a salah chart to encourage her to perform her 5 daily prayers….starting with fard and slowly introducing the sunnah – hopefully bribing her with the hadith of earning a house in jannah for every 12 rakah of sunnah prayer we offer ;) InshaAllah.
