(Ramadan Series Part 2) Continued…
Colouring & Drawing.
Like most children, my 3 love to get busy with their crayons and markers. So a great idea is to nurture creativity in children during Ramadan with colouring and drawing challenges.
Get your child to create a Ramadan poster that can be displayed in their room.
You can also download our Ramadan poster
and colouring sheet here.
Ramadan is the month when the Quran was revealed and there is great importance placed on reading, seeking knowledge and education in Islam. Reading and reciting Quran during Ramadan is considered of huge benefit and it is a recommended goal to try to read the entire Quran during this holy month.
“The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Quran, a guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and the criterion (between right and wrong)” – The Quran, Al-Baqarah 2:185
“Jibreel used to come to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) every night in Ramadan, and study the Quran with him.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari – 5: Muslim, 4268.
Establishing a reading routine for children is a wonderful way to build a foundation when they are young.
It provides an opportunity for them to connect with stories while spending time with you, or another loved one. So take the time to read to them, or have them read to you.
I’ve made it a goal of mine to continue to build upon my children’s library and these are some of our favourite books to read during Ramadan…
- Owl & Cat: Ramadan Is…
- Golden Domes and Silver Lanterns
- Lailah’s Lunchbox
- Ramadan Moon
- Ilyas & Duck: Ramadan Joy
- Ilyas & Duck: Fantastic Festival Eid-Al-Fitr
Good Deeds Tree
The concept of being rewarded for good deeds and acts of kindness is something that can be taught to children at a very young age.
Inspired by Muslim Kids Guide’s Flourishing Deeds Tree, I decided to create my own variation. Based on my Arabic Alphabet Tree art print I’ve created a Good Deeds Tree to track and reward children for each good deed they perform.
Download the printable template and instructions for my Good Deeds Tree here
You can choose to use the coloured template or have your children colour and decorate the black and white version.
Then simply assemble the tree trunk and write different good deeds on the back of the leaves, or print and use the ready made ones. Every time your child performs one of the good deeds, they get to stick the leaf onto the tree. The goal is to finish Ramadan with a tree full of leaves!
As an extra incentive, you can also choose to reward them if they collect a certain amount of leaves by the end of Ramadan.
These were just a few of our favourite activities to do during Ramadan, but I’d love to hear what you enjoy doing with your kids!
Hopefully you’ll be able to add a couple of these to your list now too!
If you have any other suggestions or tips I’d love to hear them and maybe add them to this post! You can leave a comment at the start of this blog post here.
