My First Ramadan Plate {Tutorial}

When you are introducing Ramadan to a young child it’s good to start slow the first few years.  It’s also a good idea to make it fun for them.

Today we made this plate so that our meals were a little more pleasant.


White porcelain plate
Sharpies*** Oil Based ONLY

Place tape down on the plate so that it’s easier to write in a straight line.

My daughter wanted to practice writing out the words ‘My First Ramadan’ on paper first so she’d know how it would fit.  You are welcome to do this also, or just write on the plate directly. The photo shows the regular Sharpie we used before we found out they did not work in the oven. Use the oil based ones only.

Bake it for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Allow them to cool completely before washing or using.

Seriously, you’ve reached the end of the directions.  How easy was today!!!

***Update – the regular Sharpies don’t work!  Make sure that you are using the Oil Based Paint Sharpies.  We placed our plate on a wall as decoration and stared fresh when we made our Ramadan Suhoor Sharpie Mug.
