My daughters and I have really enjoyed sharing our Ramadan crafts challenge with you for the past nine years.

We are thrilled to once again start up our 30 day challenge tomorrow, our 10th annual, for the 2020 Gregorian and 1441 Hijri year.

We are celebrating with a contest.

You will see some old favorites, a perler start to easy into out first day, an advent calendar to count down, a few games to help us through some tough tests, and of course projects on mosques, stars, moons, Eid (including some fun favors!) plus we’ll be adding to the Ramadan list.

We’ll have some printables to make sure we keep learning, a few recipes to share during iftars with friends, a brand new Ramadan book review and some special guest posts for days that we need a break from social media to enjoy this holy month.

Please stop by our past years of 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018; to see fun, often recycelable crafts plus activities and as always, visiting the A Crafty Arab Pinterest page is usually the best place to visually see *almost* everything.

Be sure to follow A Crafty Arab on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to keep up with our daily posts. Share them with your parent, educator or curious friends too!

If you are looking for books or gifts for Eid to finally have this year the one that you’ll get ahead of wrapping presents, please think about buying books from our A Crafty Arab resource links and website to help support the supplies needed for the blog (keeping in mind that I am donating portions of each sale of my brand new Arabic Alphabet Coloring Book to refugees families in need).

There are two Islamic holidays celebrated worldwide each year. Eid AlFitr (in Arabic عيد الفطر), is a holiday that occurs at the end of Ramadan and Eid AlAdha (in Arabic عيد الأذى), is a holiday that honors the willingness of Ibrahim (pbuh) to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to Allah’s command.

Eid is the Arabic word (عيد) for festive occasions and also is used for other special days of the year, such as Christmas (in Arabic عيد الميلاد pronounced eid almilad), Mother’s Day (in Arabic عيد يوم الأم pronouced eid yawm alum), Father’s Day (in Arabic عيد يوم الاب pronouced eid yawm alab), Valentine’s Day (in Arabic عيد الحب pronounced eid alhabu) or Birthdays (in Arabic عيد ميلاد pronounced eid milad).

Ramadan Crafts 10th Annual Contest {Resource}

Childrens Ramadan Crafts

In 2011 A Crafty Arab launched #CraftyRamadan, an annual challenge to create a project a day for the Islamic holy month, Ramadan, when Muslims around the world fast, with 30 days of activities for parents and caregivers to do with children.

The goal is to teach children in a fun, educational way about the Arab world and Muslim culture.

This now includes over 250 sharable tutorials, recipes and downloads that educate about the MENA (Middle East and  North Africa) region of the world.

This year marks its 10th annual challenge for the 2020 Gregorian and 1441 Hijri year.

To acknowledge this special occasion, I will have a contest. Here are the rules to follow while staying home, safe and healthy:

  2. Choose from over 600 free tutorials, recipes, book reviews, and printable images and do the project. 
  3. Post your final piece to Instagram using the hashtags #CraftyRamadan2020  #ACraftyArab and tag @ACraftyArab

The final grand prize will be awarded to the person who posts the most completed projects during this special holy month.
