Here are some GREAT Ramadan activities for any age. I’ve found colouring, Quran help, workbooks, journals and note pages!
It’s that time of year again. Ramadan baskets are popping up on Instagram, decorations are being uploaded to Pinterest, and we’re trying to sift through all the freebies to find the best Ramadan activities for our kids! Well, I’ve done the legwork, so keep scrolling to find the best of the best resources out there.
PLUS I’ve designed an exclusive Our Daily Wonders Journal with a prompt for every single day of Ramadan. Oh, and it’s free! Scroll down to download!
Let’s be honest, all the fancy workbooks are amazing, but sometimes we need something our kids can do independently. Read: without Mum’s help!
Enter – colouring sheets! I like to give my kids access to a range of art supplies. We have pastels, watercolour paints, glue sticks and coloured tissue paper, pencil crayons, and coloured pens. And they don’t need me to use any of it.
I found these amazing colouring pages online from equally amazing websites, so check them all out!
- Iftar Placemat from Umm Abdul Basir’s Creative Corner
Each child can make their own placemat for Iftar time!
- Seerah Colouring Book from Iman’s Home-School
This is awesome because the older children can learn whilst they colour and put the story together in the right order.
- Allah Made Everything Colourful from MamaTeachesMe
My daughter is going to LOVE this. She’s obsessed with different colours at the moment, so this is perfect!
Right, the kids have been colouring and you were able to
have a good nap get some housework done! Now it’s time to focus on what Ramadan is really about – Our relationship with the Qur’an.
- Daily Qur’an Study Journal by Salam Homeschooling
This printable is suitable for you and your children. You could study together as you make your way through the Qur’an.
- Laylatul-Qadr Workbook from Iman’s Home-School and designed by troid.org.
It wouldn’t be Ramadan if we didn’t focus on Surah Al-Qadr. This workbook will help you structure your study.
Another central theme during Ramadan is gently exposing our children to knowledge about their faith. This is where workbooks and worksheets really come in handy. And the internet is FULL of them. Here are some great ones:
- Ramadan Doodle & Note by Iman’s Home-School
40 pages of activities and worksheets associated with Ramadan. This can be a wonderful joint-research activity for the children to do together – adults too!
- Teach Me About Ramadan by Eezee Homeschool
Suitable for ages 4-8, this book is engaging and informative, complete with little exercises for the child to consolidate their learning.
- The Tree House by Learning Roots
With several ideas for children at home, Learning Roots also provide a free Arabic handwriting book, a progress tracker and du’as for children to learn.
Ramadan Journal by Our Daily Wonders
Journaling is a habit every person on the planet should have. Just sayin’. I’ve encouraged you to start a journal before, and now it’s your children’s turn.
Ramadan is a time of reflection, and it’s a skill we all need a little help with. I’ve designed this journal for children of any age – if they can hold a pencil or a paintbrush, they can benefit from this journal! With a prompt for every day, children can explore their thoughts, worries and desires. Feel free to talk about their answers or let them keep it private. Their journal, their rules!
