Trick or Treating for food bank items

Posted:

What an awesome idea! I have to admit, I’m torn on the whole Trick or Treating… I don’t think it’s as sinister as made out to be sometimes, and like someone recently told me, if it’s not haraam, then why do we make it so? This is one thing that will make it more palatable for sure!

Iftar Party Ideas

Posted:

Planning on having an iftaar party for your children? Here are some ideas to get you going!

  • Take them shopping for charity!

I loved this idea done by a clever mum – “Invite them home a little early and pop into the closest supermarket and give them some money, then ask them to buy some food for charity! Make it a challenge to make it even more exciting: Who can get the most items out of the designated £5? Who can spend the closest to £5? What kinds of food do you think would be most appreciated?”

So many lessons to learn! And so fitting for this month!

  • Another idea sent in was to invite your friends to bring something with them when they come like this family did!:13493365_10154355712571424_1629276178_o

  • Another idea was to give out an empty box and a Ramadan Giving Calendar (see: https://www.buzzideazz.com/ramadan-giving-calendar/) as a party favour to encourage children to give charity during the month.

  • How about this Diner idea?Instead of presents, everyone was asked to bring a brand new unwrapped toy to the value of £10-15 to give to a child at Hillingdon hospital. They managed to deliver 27 😀!

    And finally, the icing on the top was their party favours. They distributed reusable (and collapsible to fit in pockets and purses!) tea cups filled with sweets, to encourage the girls to bring their own dishes to iftars and do their bit to protect the earth that we live in by cutting down on disposable waste.

Have you held iftaar parties? Would love to hear what you do in them!
