We are so honored to host a guest post for our Ramadan crafts 30 day challenge from DoctorMom.
Maliha is sharing how she made this Ramadan Good Deeds Calendar as a daily reminder of things to do for others during Ramadan.
Ramadan 30 day Good deeds calendar
To introduce the importance of the Holy Month of Ramadan we decided to make a 30 day calendar for the kids. A good deed message would be left on each day for them to read it out & perform the good deed. My sons are 3.6 & 2.6 now, I’m looking forward to trying more variations for this calendar as they grow up with bringing in memorization of duas & rabbanas, In Sha Allah.
- Card board – base
- Paper cups – for each day of the month
- Black chart paper
- Golden glitter paper – to draw out the moon phases for the 29 /30 day period of the lunar calendar
- Chart paper- to write in a good deed for each day
- Small bottles – to fold and keep the messages in the bottles
- Foam board – to cut out masjid & moon templates
- Lights – for decoration purpose
- All the supplies used can be found in art & craft supplies of my Amazon Storefront
How we set up the calendar?
I used a cardboard and stuck paper cups depicting 30 days of a month, used black chart paper and gold glitter sheets to cut out the phases of moon starting Day 1 through Day 30.
Once the moon cutouts was ready glued them to the cups . Next jotted down 30 good deeds (this is purely editable according to what we want to teach the kids) , rolled these messages and put in small message bottles and kept it inside each paper cup.
So In Sha Allah starting this Ramadan each day the kids are expected to open one bottle , read & perform the message on the bottles!
Just for decorating purposes I attached lights & also made one masjid & moon cutout and stuck it on the calendar.
We are just waiting to stick up the calendar and start our Good deeds journey this Ramadan. Ameen.
