Ramadan Activities Day # 19-23

Note: These posts were written in Ramadan but are being posted now.... Some pictures and explanations are missing, I hope to put them in sometime soon Inshallah


Giant Journey Puzzle 

(A Joint Activity)

Lil Muallimah and I made the Giant Journey Puzzle with Lil Muallim # 2 helping out with the inserts. He literally ran o the other room to double check on the Giant journey poster to see if we were doing it right. :) Mashallah! We talked about some of the Prophets stories. 

Lil Muallaim # 2's Activity

 Teaching Lil Muallimah

Lil Muallim read out Prophet Nuh's, Prophet Yunus's and Prophet Salih's stories from his story books and told them wonderfully too Mashallah! Later in teh day I gave them a hand made worksheet to color to review the stories discussed earlier in the day. 

Lil Muallimah's Activity



Where is the time flying ? It's always like this once 15 days of Ramadan have passed it seems like the days  just start to whiz by. Subhanallah! What to say .... you do what you can ..... :) 

Lil Muallaimah's Activity

 Eid Cards Part 2

Today Lil Muallimah put together her Eid cards by gluing the inserts all by herself. She did a very neat job Mashallah. I was quite impressed to see every time that I tried to double check that she had placed the insert right side up and not upside down in any of the cards. Showed that she id put thought into what she was doing and recognized  and understood how the letters should show. Alhumdolillah!

She also made a pop up card seeng Lil Muallim # 2's card for  their Grandfathers brother who is a sailor.

Lil Muallaim # 2's Activity

 Pop up Eid Card Part 2

Lil Muallim # 2 finihsed up his pop up card that he was making for his Grandfathers brother who is a sailor. Almost every other card that he makes for him has to have a boat. Hence the boat pop up card........



Lil Muallaim # 2's Activity

 Lil Muallim #2's craft was actually done staying up all night with the whole family (accept Lil Muallimah) seeking Laylatul Qadr in the first odd night of the last ten days .

We continued our family tradition of encouraging the children to stay up at night for as long as they like and can hoping to catch the Night of Qadr and spend it in Glorifying Allah. 

I have mentioned about this in an earlier post heres how I explained it:

"A common practice in our household to encourage kids to stay up on Layla tul Qadr is that they are allowed to stay up and make Lego on the condition that they will do adhkaar with every piece they put on. With the blessings of Allah they look forward to those nights every Ramadan and remember them as special days through out the year Alhumdolillah."

You can see their past Ramadan Lego work here.




I read out a story to my Lil Muallims on how Allah has made everything for us and we should say Subhanallah (Glory be to Allah) in wonder and amazement at His creations. On the other hand there are also many things that man makes, but we have to realize that they have only been made possible by the materials Allah has provided for us and the skill and intelligence he has enabled us to use, so we should say Alhumdoillah! 

Lil Muallaimah's Activity

 Sorting with Dhikr

I put together this activity for Lil Muallimah in her Ramadan activity bag # 19. After I had read out a related story to her and Lil Muallim # 2 from a book I have. I took out the cards from the bag and told her how she had to sort the things in the bag......

Alhumdolillah this activity was thought provoking and an interesting Logical thinking game. Loved that fact that the element of dhikr (remembrance of Allah and and praising Him was prevalent in this activity. Got to love that....:):):):) 

I hope to do more of it Inshallah by changing the objects from time to time. Inshallah.

I had actually printed this last year but never got around doing with him.  Umm ... post reminded me of it and out it came. Jazakaallah khair ukhti :)

 Lil Muallim pasted and cut the mini book, but surprisingly he didn't want bind it to gether as a flip book. He wanted to keep it as cards to play that he could put in order on his own.......! Well the activity was for him to enjoy so I let him chose how he wanted to use them.... I have found him playing with them again and again over the past few days Alhumdolillah


Lil Muallaimah's Activity

I drew out the Kalimah for Lil Muallimah on marble effect construction paper and she colored it in.


Memorizing the names of Allah Part 3

We continued on to doing the next 9 names. We are going in any particular order but doing the ones he is familiar with first. 

Here's his third sheet. 

We hope to continue a more detailed discussion on the meanings of Allah's beautiful names and their attributes through Ad-Duha books. Which I will be posting about as our lessons progess Inshallah.

Lil Muallim # 2 played with his self designed Lego toys while doing dhikr.......
