For "converts" & non-Muslims or mixed families - Something For Everyone

Physical activities maybe limited because of bad weather (too hot? too cold? too wet? too dry?) or big city living?

So, here are just a few of many various forms of activities for inside and non-stress things-to-do like contests in memory, recitation, Arabic words, search for stories www.SearchForIslam.com search puzzles, and word scrambles.

Videos online:

Ideas for Kids’ Crafts

 

Examples - Create an Islamic Design:

Encourage your kids to draw a mosque with a minaret. Cut out the picture and paste it on a cardstock paper.

Create a poem on Ramadan and let your kids fill the picture with the write-up.

Ramadan lanterns:

You can involve your kids in Ramadan activities like creating lanterns meant especially for this occasion. All you need is a white or colored construction paper where you can create the shape of a lantern with the help of tracing paper. Encourage your kids to apply multiple colors like blue, gold, and green on each section of the lantern. Use crayons and markers to color the sections of the lanterns. Just make sure the lantern looks bright and colorful. Your kids will take interest in such a craft, and they’ll be happy to be part of such an exciting activity.

Night sky and moon project:

kids stuff12If you live away from the bright lights of the city, or can visit a place far enough out to see the sky, let them watch for the moon as the month progresses from a tiny sliver like a thumb nail - to a 'banana' shape - then to a 'lemon slice' - to look like a 'grapefruit' or 'orange' - then to begin to reverse going to an 'apple with a bite out of it' and back to a 'banana' to a 'thumb nail' and all of a sudden - NO MORE MOON?
-- That would be TIME FOR EID (see how fast Ramadan went by?)

You may help your kids create the night sky and moon project by using a blue construction paper. Trace the shape of the crescent moon on the paper to help your kids proceed with the project. Let your kids color the moon with crayons or markers. You can help your kids create star-shaped pieces out of a construction paper and glue them on the blue construction paper. Then glue the blue construction paper to a cardstock paper. Next, you should create a hole on top of the cardstock paper, so that you can hang the craft with a string or ribbon.

this is amazing and just in time
we were going crazy with kids thinking what to do
but now we have it and thanks to Allah and those who serve His deen, now we do have this
I love Islam, and now my kids do love Ramadan time around our house.
Jazaakallah khair ramadhan mubarak

I don't encourage the lanterns as it is a way of imitating the non-muslims in their festive seasons.

The Prophet (pbuh) said " One who imitates a nation is one of them"

And also, they are unnecessary, and Allah doesn't like the wasters.

Well other than that, the links are cool and fun too and jazakhallakhair for them, Happy Ramadan!=)

Masha'Allah! I love the ideas. Great for the children, I've been looking for this topic to be covered, in a way to just get them excited, and just involved really. Jazak[umu]'Alla h Khairan.
