Idea Number 2:
Some schools also invite parents to come in but if they do not, GO TO THEM YOURSELVES! They will never say no, and most R.E. teachers will even appreciate an expert going in and explaining Eid better than they ever could 🙂
The best part is, you can involve your children in the nursery and school presentations, and they LOVE it! I know mine are already asking me about going in to their classroom again this year!
If you’re stuck on what to do for the older children, check out these lesson plan/ideas:

And here is a short talk on Eid-ul-Adha:
So yesterday I wrote about how we should Inshallah try to really make the most of the upcoming Eid in order to make it fun and memorable for our children, as well as spread the message of love and celebration to the wider community about us!
I am going to post some ideas over the next few days but PLEASE feel free to jump in and add your own!
Idea Number 1:
Most nurseries (especially Montessori/Steiner and the like) encourage parents to come in and talk about Eid. JUMP at this chance and do it! If you’re stuck for ideas, check out the lesson plan on the link below, which has ideas for objects to take in to show, a rhyme to sing and things to do.
