Day 27 of our Ramadan crafts challenge was spent talking about Laylat Al Qadr.
Laylat Al Qadr is considered the holiest night of the year for Muslims, celebrated on one of the nights of the last ten days of Ramadan. Muslims believe that on this night the blessings and mercy of God are abundant, sins are forgiven, supplications are accepted, and that the annual decree is revealed to the angels who also descend to earth.
We made new handprint prayers, continuing our tradition from last year. We also spent part of our afternoon making mini flashlights to get ready for a night of extended prayers.
We started by tracing the cardboard tube on the card stock.
Now we know the size of the inside of our cardboard, we drew out a crescent moon and star inside.
We cut out the two shapes.
We laid them out on a piece of cling wrap, then added another piece of cling wrap over. My daughter called it a shapes sandwich.
We centered our shapes on the cardboard tube and added a piece of tape to hold the cling wrap together.
We then added the rubber band to help hold the cling wrap on the tube.
Our final step was adding the flashlight inside the tube and turning it on.
