There are a growing number of resources out there to help mark this special month, here they are below:
- Kisa Kids have been releasing booklets for the last few years which are FULL of activities to mark the occasions of the months. They are available to download for free here. They also have banners, amal checklists, etc.
- Zair Zabr Play has a few free printables for Rajab, including a booklet on Me’raj.
- Here is one by Lunar Learners on Me’raj (Although there is much debate about Me’raj being on the 27th of Rajab, with the consensus being it’s not – that date is important for Mab’ath), you can use these on the other dates that have given for Me’raj)
- Months of Islam:
- General Ramadan:
- Moon Phases:
- Good Deeds:
- Laylatul Qadr:
One great idea to help mark Ramadan is to have a countdown calendar. I will share specific ideas of what parents do every year on another post, but here i would like to compile some ideas of different types of calendars:
- Cloth calendars: These have boomed over the last few years – check out this very reasonable one: https://eidparty.co.uk/collections/ramadan-calendars – or you could just make your own!
2. Now there are also chocolate/candy calendars out for the month! Some are available through main stores, and others through individuals. I suggest you do a google search and see what comes up! Check out this one:
(For those in the UK interested in the above, contact Faiza on 07826 865 244 )
3. Check out this twist on an advent calendar – where the emphasis is on giving during the month.
Try and find a charity near you that is running one! If not, simply collect some items over the month in a box (one a day!) and hand it to a food bank.
4. Make your own! There are LOADS of ideas out there – and we have also shared them here on Buzz Ideazz for inspiration. Check them out here.
