As a child there was not such thing as Ramadan Activity Books, and all I really knew about Ramadan was that it was the month that my parents and all the older people fasted from the morning until the evening. In all honesty I never really understood why, or the logic behind it, but I always wanted to do it just because everyone else was fasting!
However nowadays there is so much information available online and books to help teach your children about Ramadan in a fun way. It is always important to teach your children the importance of ramadan and WHY we fast.
Ramadan can also be a time where it is hard to keep the children entertained. With such long fasts in the summer, it is safe to say that by the end of the day you can be tired and you are not always thinking about how to keep the children occupied. That is where activity books can help.
I decided to share 3 of the books we have. Please note that some of these were sent to me for the purposes of review. However I wouldn’t recommend them in this post if I did not think they were worth it.
My Ramadan Fun Book
Recommended for ages 7-10, My Ramadan Fun Book has activities, which include word searches and crosswords, based on a number of themes:
- Significance of the month of Ramadan
- Fasting and its benefits
- Recitation of the Holy Quran
- Respecting the Masjid
- Hunger around the World
I previously did a video showing you the pages of the book.
Children Ramadan Journal
This is a 30 day activity journal for children recommended for ages 6-10 years old. It is ideal to learn about Ramadan and Islam in a fun and interactive way. Not just activities for the children to do but also the child can write down their daily worship along with their thoughts.
Once the child has penned their thoughts, or even when they are about to write in the journal, this is the perfect opportunity for parents to discuss the topic for the day.
You can watch my IGTV video where I show you a glimpse into the book.
Momin Explorers Ramadan Activity Book
Recommended for ages 6-10, the activity book is about helping your child to discover the lunar calendar, basics of fasting and healthy eating, different forms of worship , blessed nights of ramadan and more. It has the usual activities such as word searches and crosswords. However there are also crafts such as a dua craftand sadaqah box, with templates at the back of the activity book.
Here are some examples from inside the book:
My UK readers are able to purchase these books from Amazon. Please note these are affiliate links.
