Ramadan Crafts: DIY Sadaqa Box (Charity box)

Posted by on Jul 30, 2013 in Childhood, Home Decor, LoaMP, Ramadan/Eid | 0 comments

Kids and I decorated this fun and simple Sadaqa box to place all of our change and loose bills into. I always stress out the importance of giving, sharing and kindness as much as i can. And Ramadan was the perfect timing to reinforce that into my little ones. Every time they find change/money, they run to put it in the box, they know it might be going to help out a kid buy food and toys. I believe instilling this into one’s character from a young age will help them become generous giving people when they grow up.

My husband got a pool for the kids. You know, those large easy set up, weirdly rounded pools. Yeah, so I set it up with the kids (nearly fainted from the heat :/) and it took 2.5 hours to fill. And they’ve been having a blast in it ever since. We set it up on the concrete so it won’t leave a huge round area of dead grass in our yard. We had just cut the grass, so their feet were full of grass clippings, I left a bucket of water and a stool for them to rinse their feet and hop in the pool. They still manage somehow to get it dirty in there, so I’m on fishing duty the whole time. I also hung up some hooks for them to hang stuff up, I hate seeing towels...
