Children’s Focus             


Daily Good Deed Cards  /  Daily Thankful Jar 

Decorate a container as elaborately or simply as you like, then fill it with good deed cards.
Every day, a child can select a deed from the jar. Keep the tasks simple, especially for younger children. After they complete the good deed, the children can write on the back, something they are grateful for and place the card in the Thankful Jar. After Ramadan, the children can reflect on their cards, good deeds and things to be thankful for.

Free Ramadan Activities Book for Kids 7-12 Years Old

The following pictures are from a free resource   

The children looked at the pictures and named all the differences. Then we discussed how they can make their own similar game. First, take a picture of some room. Then, add or remove things from the room and take a second picture. Show the pictures to your parents, or siblings. See if they can notice the differences.


Make a Ramadan Star and Moon Mobile or Banner

The children were asked which picture had the crescent moon.
