Ramadan Crafts: Making Ramadan Journals!

Posted by on Jun 28, 2014 in Ramadan/Eid | 0 comments

I got this amazingly clever idea from my friend Amnah at Littlelifeofmine.com. She has lots of Ramadan related posts and she also writes for disneybaby.com *gasp!*. Go check her out. Anyways, we got regular blank notebooks and I had the kids decorate their own with stickers on the outside. (Some advice, don’t use glitter glue, long story, just don’t!) On the inside we are planning to write down what happens each day during the month of Ramadan. Anything they feel is interesting, they can draw anything they want as well. Then we can keep and cherish the books forever! I will occasionally add in questions to help them figure out what to write. We got these awesome stamps from eidway.com! Can’t wait to see what they fill them up with! Share this:ShareFacebookPinterestEmailTwitterPrintLike this:Like...

Posted by on Jun 28, 2014 in Ramadan/Eid, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Ramadan Mubarak to everyone who is celebrating this year! May Allah accept all our fasts and grant us all our wishes and duas and place you and us in the highest level of Imaan and Taqwa. I can’t believe how quickly Ramadan had returned!! Talk about time flying, more like time warping! Anyways, this year is our first year for the kids to attempt fasting half a day. Sara is 6 and Malik is 5. Sara is more interested and willing to learn. I’m not going to push it but at least I would like them to feel why this month is super special and to get them excited for it again in the coming years inshallah. If you have any tips on fasting with kiddos please comment below. As for this breastfeeding mama, I won’t be able to...

Posted by on Oct 11, 2013 in Kinder-Ventures, LoaMP, Ramadan/Eid | 0 comments

Eid Mubarak everyone!! Its that time of the year again and I wanted to share our Kindergarten Hajj/Eid activities at school.   we made these little Ka’abas out of tiny milk cartons, black paper and gold ribbon. So adorable. Also made these little sheep crafts out of cotton balls, googly eyes and red fuzzy wires (forgot their name) For the Eid party, there was tons of candy, cake and sweets. I made ma3moul to bring with me as well. This is called Candy Rain. The kids take turn sitting under the blanket while the teachers throw candy on the top and it falls through the holes, thus candy rain! All this while saying “Labayk Allahoma Labayk” as the Pilgrims would do around the Ka’aba. The gift exchange table, each kids brings a wrapped gift and they exchange them around...
