Ramadan Idea 4: The Night Before Ramadan
Welcome Ramadan in with EXCITEMENT!
I am super excited to be sharing this with you. Inspired by this post on an idea to welcome the school year (http://sunnydaysinsecondgrade.blogspot.co.uk/2011/07/ready-confetti.html), we have come up with with a Welcome Ramadan card and poem for children!
“The night before Ramadan is exciting and fun
There are always so many things to be done
Your sadqa box is ready, your dua book is too
Your mosque is full of fun things you will do
Lots of questions go through your head, of every kind
Will I be able to fast? Fast with my whole body and mind?
Sometimes we all get the jitters down deep
And that makes it hard to fall fast asleep
So I’ve made this magic confetti for you
Full of promises for the whole month through
On Wednesday night when you lay down your head
Just sprinkle some under your pillow in bed
The confetti will help you sleep through the night
And wake in the morning fresh and bright
Mommy and Pappa are excited for all that you’ll do
Remember Allah and be kind…we’re so proud of you!”
It’s a FREE download! Simply print it off, fold it, and stick on a teeny weeny bag of confetti inside – then cuddle up to your children tonight, open it and share a special moment welcoming this month in, Inshallah!

P.S. If you’re like me, you may want to keep a hoover/brush pan nearby for afterwards!
P.P.S. If you do this, do share your experiences!
