I’m super super excited to be sharing this! The wonderful Kisa Kids (kisakids.org) and Camp Noor (camp-noor.org) created a fantabulous Escape Room on Taqwa. I used their detailed notes to put it together for my kids (aged 12 and 14 years) – and they had a blast!
Here is the link with all the different printouts, set up info and guidelines you will need. The escape room has SO many different aspects to it – from cryptographs, to decoders, to invisible ink and spot the differences! I needed to purchase a few small items to set it up, such as an invisible ink pen and a plain puzzle, but otherwise managed to source most things from around the house.
Here are a few pics from our adventures!
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)
- This journal is ideal for 7 years and older – It has information, as well as plenty of space for lecture notes and self-reflection. https://www.buzzideazz.com/shop/tears-for-my-imam-journal/
