Ramadan is just around the corner and this is the perfect craft to get your little ones (and big ones) excited about it! This Ramadan calendar has a special surprise in each bag, one for each day.
Every night, at Iftar time, have your child open the bag to get a treat or a toy. This helps keep the excitement going the whole entire month!
The possibilities are endless as to what you can put in the goodie bags! You can find a lot of stuff at the dollar store or the dollar bin at Target. Here are some ideas for inspiration:
- Crayons, markers, pencils
- Tiny cars
- Tiny chocolate treat
- Toy figurines
In some bags you can also put some Islamic inspiration. Write out a short verse from the Quran for them to memorize. Or give them an example of a Sunnah and have them follow it. For example, tell them it is Sunnah to smile or eat with the right hand and drink while sitting down.
Ramadan is such a special and exciting time for Muslims and I love passing on that excitement to my children! May Allah make this a blessed month for us all, accept our good deeds and forgive our sins.
