So I've been researching craft and activity ideas. For the last couple of years, we've done a paper chain and torn off one ring a day. Last year at sundown the children got a sweet treat to celebrate the end of the fasting day. (As a side note, children and nursing mothers do not fast.) This year I'm thinking Trader Joe's organic lollipops. We love those! We have made some sort of card or craft to mail out to our Muslim family across the Nation and one for our home each year. Here's some from the past
Prayer rug magnets
The Kabah made of popsicle sticks
We also did a really cool puzzle card. We got the puzzles from Michael's and painted them. For this year I'm leaning toward a bookmark or a Shrinky Dink keychain, because they'll be easy to mail. The twins want to do something for their friends so I'm thinking some star and cresent cookies, maybe? I found two good sites, Ramadan Crafts and TJ Ramadan. I plan to use a lot of ideas from them. OK, Muslim moms out there, what are you planning?
