Ramadan Word Scramble {Printable}

I made this Ramadan word scramble for my daughter as an indoor activity for this rainy Saturday.

I choose words that are most often used during this holy month and wanted to see how many of these scrambled words she could unscramble:

RAMADAN, ISLAM, FASTING, QURAN, PRAYERS, MOSQUE, SUNRISE, MOON, DRUM, PILLAR. MUSLIMS, DATES, SUNSET, READ, THANKFUL, PATIENCE, EID AL FITR, FAITH, FAMILY, LANTERN

You can download the Ramadan word scramble here to use with kids, just please make sure it is for personal use only.

Eid Aperture Card {Tutorial}

Today’s task was to continuing to celebrate girls in STEAM by making these aperture Eid Mubarak cards for our Ramadan craft.

STEAM are Science Technology Engineering Art and Math focused education structures that try to highlight these fields in certain schools. A few days ago, we made a khatam atom caution sign. My daughter and I combined all these fields again today while talking about aperture cards, a type of punched card with a cut-out window into which a chip of microfilm is mounted.

While they are no longer being used, the same concept has migrated over to greeting cards and now many companies are selling pre-cut aperture cards.

My daughter made her own cards that spell out Eid Mubarak since Eid Al Fitr is less than two weeks ago at the end of Ramadan. Mubarak means blessed and the two words together are said as a greeting during celebrations with family and friends.

Supplies

  • Card stock already precut to card size, plus an extra half sheet
  • Double-sided tape
  • Washi tape
  • Die cut letters & machine
  • Scissors
  • Pencil or pen

I found these funky die cut letters at my local craft store but if you don’t have something similiar, you will need to hand cut the letters out.

My daughter had to run the card through the machine twice since there was only one A die cut.

Once all the letters were cut, she folded over the card and added double sided tape to three of the sides.

She slid the extra card stock inside the card to make slight marks with the pencil, then covered that area with the washi tape.

She wrote a note on the back of the cardstock before slipping it inside.

Ramadan Popsicle Suncatcher {Tutorial}

For our Ramadan craft today, we thought it would be fun to combine the last two days to make this Ramadan Kareem color shift glitterific suncatcher in the shape of a khatam, Arabic for 8 point star.

We used the shape from our caution sign and the paints from the mosque and now have a fun suncatcher that glitters in the sun.

We printed out the words Ramadan Kareem on vellum. The words mean “may Ramadan be generous to you” in Arabic and is a saying used during the holy month by some. Not everyone uses it, and some believe that saying Ramadan Mubarak, which means Glorious Ramadan in Arabic, is better, but I grew up saying both as a child in Libya. So today my daughter and I talked about the difference between the two sayings as she made this suncatcher.

Supplies

  • Ramadan Kareem printed on vellum
  • Glue
  • Paintbrush
  • Xacto
  • Color shift paint
  • Glitterific paint
  • Popscicle sticks (8)

Our first step was to paint the popsicle sticks with the purple color shift paint. We only need to paint one side of the eight sticks.

We waited a few hours, then my daughter added the glitterific paint to the sticks.

You can see how the glitter started out white in the bottle, but it really picks up the purple from the paint to create this fantastic texture.

Once all eight sticks had fully dried, my daughter glued four of them into a square. She repeated the same step with the other four sticks.

She then glued the two squares to each other, offsetting them to create a khatam.

The final step is to add the vellum to the back of the khatam with glue, then going over the edges to cut off the extra paper.

We waited a few hours for everything to fully dry, then found a suction hanger to add it to our window. I took the photo too late in the day, so the sun was in the wrong spot for my image. I wish that you can see how the glitter is super sparkly in the window.
