Ramadan Activities for Young Ones

Posted:

So here is what one mum did to help her kids benefit from this month in so many amazing ways!

Imam Ali (AS) bags for the less fortunate: Great activity for little toddlers. They love filling bags. First explained how Imam Ali always helped people…. Went to the store had her pick items she thinks everyone would need on a daily basis- comb, toothbrush, snacks. Came home and she packed everything into ziplock bags and asked the grandparents to come home to help write Hadith from Imam Ali (as) on the hearts which we put in the bags. IA to disburse them throughout the holy month.

Good Deeds Tree: pick a good deed from the jar, implement it and get to decorate a heart ornament to put on the tree. Just like a tree grows beautiful hearts good deeds will make our hearts grow and make us shine. The tree will light up every time they were able to do the good deed.

Quran Wall: Use this wall to learn all about the awesomeness of this great book. Focusing on Surah Qadr memorization and suwer of Juz Ammah. Each time she memories a Surah she gets to put the sticker on the Juz Ammah tree.

 We have a light up Quranic box which we will put different objects that are in the Quran inside and begin discussions from them. Example- we will put animals in the box. Create excitement by turning the lights on the box on and off, open the box and talk about the story of Prophet Nuh. Box credit goes to HIC Quran Club.

Following the Footsteps of Imam Ali (AS):
Learn all about our amazing Imam and give children examples from his life the little ones can implement. Children will cut out their own footsteps and put it on the wall to help them see the path to Allah is always going to be through the our Ahlul Bayt and Quran. We will post different activities we do that relate to the Imam on the Black cloth and end it with his martyrdom.

Advent Calendar: Each bag has a good deed to do, a Quranic Word, money for sadka. Bags are decorated to also show days of sadness (black bags) and happiness (glitter bags). Some bags have special presents to help reinforce the extra special days and likewise for the days of mourning.

Our Blessings Garden: Helping children see how beautiful our blessings are and how we need to nurture them and appreciate them.
Each flower will have a theme in the center and the petals we will write why that blessings is important to us. One of the theses will be Allah- we are thankful to have the one and only beat God. On the petals we will put Allah’s names and discuss how lucky we are to have Allah who is Al-Khaliq he made everything and go into discussion of all the creations.. How Allah is Al-Wadud and go into discussion of how He loves us soo much.

App No 4: Arabic Matching Game

Once they have mastered the alphabet, consolidate this knowledge with this cute memory game!

There are 5 levels, with each next level unlocking if you pass the first. In the first, there are 12 apples with different alphabet in them, and when you make a match, a child’s voice says “Subhanallah”, and when you make a mismatch, the voice says “Astaghfirullah” – check it out, even if just to hear this…bound to bring a smile on your face 🙂

Overall? The aesthetics are pleasing, and it’s a cute little time passer for the young ‘uns.

Free to download for ANDROID 🙂 and I-stuff:

App 1 - Hijaiya

Bismillah – let the Muslim Children App Series begin 🙂

App No 1: Muslim Kids Series – Hijaiya

When I initially asked you to send through any good Muslim Kid Apps you had found, this was one of the first that was recommended, and by many different people! Once I tried it out, I can see why…I only wish this had been around when my two were starting to learn their alphabet, although my daughter still enjoyed having a go 🙂

Downloadable for free on iphones or ipads (sorry android users!), the app is bright, colourful and so easy to use. It has two options:

Learn: Here you can click on the letter to hear it’s name, as well as its sound with the three haraqat (fatha, kasra, dhamma) – thus you get both, the phonics and the name which i thought was super. You can go through in order, or select the letter you want to focus on…

Write: Here you can trace the letter with your finger, and at the bottom you can click to hear the name, thus giving you the audio consolidation again. Be careful to trace properly, otherwise you might not get all 3 stars! A mix-it-up option here is useful for the slightly older ones…

Overall? 5 out of 5 me thinks!
