AS RAMADAN IS APPROACHING WE ARE ALL LOOKING FOR SOME EASY RAMADAN CRAFTS TO MAKE WITH OUR KIDS.
Here I give you four ideas that are fun and easy, and the end result is beautiful !
1- Hilal and Star Decorations
This craft is one of my favorite. It is very easy for young children and not too messy for parents.
You will need: Cardboar/ Colored A4 paper, scissors, paper puncher, a marker, and a string. Optional glitter.
2- Print out the shapes you downloaded to colored A4 cardboard/paper.
3- Cut out the Hilal and star.
4- Use the marker to write ” رمضان كريم” or any other phrase you like. Then decorate with glitter.
5- Punch a hole in each and use the string to hang the decorations around your home.
2- Customized napkins for Iftar table
Doesn’t this sound fancy?? This craft is super easy and fun!! All you will need is the napkins, paint, some potatoes ( you’ll see why), and your imagination. This easy craft will definitely keep kids busy while you prepare Iftar.
Tips : I used red napkins and yellow paint to stamp hilal and star on each napkin. Check this for easy tutorial.
3- Ramdan Lantern
I am sure you remember those from the time you were at school, we used to make them all the time. They can be made in any color, or combination of colors, you can add glitter or metallic color. Honestly sky is the limit, so let your child create and enjoy using his/her creation to decorate your home. Follow this tutorial’s easy steps.
This final craft can be used any time of the year and can teach us and our kids a thing or two about giving.
4- Piggy bank/ moneybox
This might not sound relevant to you, but keep on reading. This Ramadan why not teach our kids to save some of their daily allowance in this money box so that they can do some charity using their own money. For example buy a poor child iftar, buy a poor family a blanket for the coming winter, or buy Eid outfit for a needy kid.
You will need : An empty tin/box . I used an empty cerelac box. Let your kid decorate it with paper, spray paint, cut out shapes, etc. You can find a very nice tutorial here.
I hope you like my ideas and you’ll try them very soon. I would love to see what your kids make, so please send us photos of their crafts!!
