Raising my kids to be global citizens and proud Muslims has been a goal of mine. These are my favourite ideas for Ramadan Decorations that are beautiful, fun and teach my kids about Ramadan. We talk about different culture and religions in our home. When Ramadan comes around, I want my kids to know it’s significance.
1. Put up Ramadan decorations
A Ramadan advent calendar is a great way to help your kids learn about Ramadan, and have a little surprise every day. I made this printable Ramadan calendar that we have reused for 3 years now.
You can hang it on your wall, on a branch, or off your fireplace. My kids love playing with the little structures with hot wheels as well – they make a little village out of it
We have a few different zones in my home with Ramadan decorations. My favourite is definitely in our play space. I created the washi tape masjid wall. This lives in our play space permanently, but we add to it for Ramadan. This year, I added this Ramadan banner. I love that it comes in different metallic tones.
2. Ramadan crafts
My kids love painting. Also Sophia has many wooden signs that kids can paint and stand up on a shelf.
3. Create a Ramadan basket
I collect all the kids Ramadan books and toys in one central place for Ramadan. We can then focus our learning in that space. What to include in our Ramadan basket:
- Ramadan chocolate Advent Calendar for them to countdown to Ramadan
- Wood crafts for them to paint
- A plush Adam doll
- Our fav Ramadan and islamic books
4. Expand their islamic knowledge
My kids are int he habit of seeing us pray. During Ramadan I try to focus more on stories from the Quran and lessons that they can use to help guide them in their life.
5. Make Ramadan fun and full of surprises
I love this pack of cookie cutters! So many different shapes. I like to surprise the kids and have with by cutting out their sandwich and cheese. We use them for playdough, cookies and pancakes as well.
6. Spread the Ramadan spirit
We put up a Ramadan wreath so our neighbours know we are celebrating Ramadan. When Eid comes around, I swap it with the Eid wreath! I added flowers to the wreath with hot glue.
I hope you have a lovely Ramadan!
