Keeping children occupied on Laylatul Qadr
As a follow on from the previous post…
We want our children to try and stay awake but be busy enough to let us do our amaal, right? And it would be great if they were occupied in Islamic activities as opposed to just normal stuff!
– Setting up a book area for them: www.islamfromthestart.com/2014/07/ramadhan-bookshelf.html
– Having a special treasure hunt for the children: www.tjannah.com/ramadhan/laylatul-qadr-treasure-hunt/
– Downloading some Muslim Children Apps on the ipad and phone: see this link for a round up of the good ones out there!http://buzzideazz.com/category/apps/
– Having some Islamic games available for them to play with (siblings are ideal here!) – some examples are Islamic Slides and Ladders, The Prophet’s Game, Brain Quest, Salaat Cards, (all available fromwww.buzzideazz.com), the Tasbih Game, the Ramadan board game (shared earlier), etc…
– Having some craft materials ready for them to make Eid cards and other crafts. Why not use the Islamic stencil to help them along the way!http://buzzideazz.com/shop/islamic-stencil/
– Having some Islamic cartoons/programmes ready for them to watch (Inshallah am planning to cover this as a series soon!)
Any other ideas out there?
