How to Make a Ramadan Reward Thermometer

Over the month of Ramadan, the children would have worked hard on their goals, what they want to improve on and on new things they want to achieve.

Build up the momentum when they receive their Eid gifts by using a Ramadan Reward Thermometer. This is used to reflect on all the great things your child has done over this holy month, day by day. They would love to feel acknowledged.

If you have an affirmation tree, use this to begin your morning of praise for your child.

The Affirmation Tree, Deeds Scale and After Ramadan Goals Lock up Box will sit nicely with this activity or all year around. Have a look at the YouTube links for these.

How to Make a Prayer Mat

Muhammed PBUH had a number of common practices before Eid salat. He would begin the Eid takbeer from the evening before and softly chant it on foot as he went early to the masjid to offer his prayers on the day of celebration.

He would wake up early and have a complete bath, brush his teeth using his miswak, put on his best clothes and athr. He would commonly eat 3 dates before leaving, following one route and returning a different way so he could greet as many people as possible.

While you make this simple prayer mat, speak to your child about the takbeer of Eid, and how we should start our day. Discuss the direction of qibla from your home and why we pray towards the Kaaba.

How to Make a Sadaqa Plant Pot

Leaving a tree behind in this world that others can get shelter, fruit or veg from is counted as sadaqa. The flowing charity from this is such a blessing.

We must ensure we look after our world, the trees. Such of Allah’s creations, benefits us in so many ways and it’s so easy to miss in the fast paced world we live in.

Teach your child about the charitable deeds linked to planting a seed by using gold, silver and bronze colours that are considered to be valuable. Make sure they’re involved in caring for it and watching it grow.
