After talking with several Muslim moms, I realized how important it’s for you to teach your kids about Ramadan while making it exciting for them. So, of course, I had to design a resource that can help you during this holy month!
This printable Ramadan Advent Calendar is a great way to help your little kids experience Ramadan while creating a new family tradition that will last forever.
The best part is that you can easily assemble it at home. So, if you have been eyeing some advent calendars but have run out of time to get them, this is a simple DIY alternative.
It’s also super cute, which will make your kids want to open all the windows at once, but don’t worry! The activities inside will keep them happy, busy, and looking forward to the next day.
In fact, this calendar features 30 different good deeds for every day of the month of Ramadan. Including a mix of religious activities and simple acts of kindness. You can read the complete list (in order) down below.
In this post, I will show you what you need and how to assemble your own Ramadan advent calendar to get your family together and fill your home with love.
So, what are you waiting for?
Let’s get into the Ramadan spirit and get your kids involved in such a meaningful celebration!
To assemble your Ramadan advent calendar, you’ll need:
- Printable Ramadan Advent Calendar (get it here or at the end of this post)
- White cardstock
- Cutter or X-acto knife
- Glue Stick
How To Make Your Ramadan Advent Calendar
This calendar is meant to be assembled exactly like our Christmas advent calendar. Just follow these 6 simple steps, and your calendar will look exactly like ours!
- Download and print your advent calendar printables on white cardstock.
- Cut out the rectangles along the purple dashed lines.
- Take the numbered page and use a ruler and a cutter to cut out 3 sides of each window along the dashed lines.
Please keep in mind that this step is intended for adults only.
- Take the page with the activities and apply glue to all the white borders.
Alternatively, you can use double-sided tape for this step.
- Stick the numbered page on top of the activities page. Make sure they are very well aligned.
- Each day of Ramadan, your kids have to open a window and do what it says.
I highly suggest using a ruler for opening the windows every day because it helps fold straight lines easily.
