Make the Most of Ramadan WITH your Kids

ramadan-with-kids

Ramadan is a month of spirituality and moral values and is a great opportunity for parents to teach their children ethics and values. You can take advantage of this holy month by implanting the beauty of the month of Ramadan in your children’s hearts and minds. During Ramadan, children build important memories which will influence how they feel about Ramadan and other Islamic traditions in later life. Let us try and create meaningful memories and habits by making the MOST of Ramadan WITH our kids.

Ramadan-with-kids

In  Episode 69 of the Raising Mums podcast, we talk about how we can make Ramadan meaningful for all the family.

Make the most of Ramadan with your children by trying to:-

  • Ramadan is a time to realign, revive and awaken spritually
  • Slow down everything, except your spirutal practices
  • When you slow down, you have more time to help your kids connect with the blessed month of Ramadan
  • Reduce unnecessary commitments
  • Preserve your energy
  • Ramadan is intrinsically beautiful and special

How to Start Your Muslim Homeschool

Launch Your Homeschool is an online course that will hold your hand and walk you through the beginning stages of homeschooling, built upon the framework of the Charlotte Mason philosophy.

I teach you how to choose the right subjects for your homeschool, how to choose the right resources and plan out your year to create a homeschool experience that aligns with the values and beliefs of your family. Whether you are homeschooling in the UK, or elsewhere in the world, this programme will help you give your children an incredible education at home. 

I show you the essential teaching techniques that you’ll need to know to get started. There’s even an entire module on how to manage your time so you can still cook, keep the house tidy and take care of yourself, all whilst homeschooling your children!

Ramadan Book Club for Kids | Ramadan Activities

Ramadan Book Club for Kids

When kids experience Ramadan, they do more than watch their parents fast and help with iftar. During Ramadan, children build important memories which will influence how they feel about Ramadan and other Islamic traditions in later life. As parents, it’s our responsibility to do our best to make these memories and feelings positive, to show an Islamic lifestyle is exciting and fascinating.

Here at Our Muslim Homeschool, we are introducing the Ramadan Book Club! Aimed at kids aged 4-9, we have gathered stories and activities for you to enjoy with your children throughout the month of Ramadan. Each book and activity has been selected to help you get the most out of this month without adding to your stressful workload!

Children respond positively to stories – as do most humans. For centuries, cultures around the world have used stories to instil important lessons and sentiments in their communities. For this reason, stories are a powerful resource when trying to teach our children Islamic principles. But how do we find the time to use stories in an efficient way and still make the most of Ramadan for ourselves?

The Ramadan Book Club for Kids

We have carefully chosen 4 books for your family to enjoy together during Ramadan – one for each week. Each book wonderfully encapsulates important aspects of Ramadan for your kids to absorb, discuss, and reflect on.

If you register with The Ramadan Book Club, you receive specially designed book packs which guide you through a range of activities linked with each story we read together. Ramadan can be filled with busy days, and these book packs have been designed to help you bond with your children in a way that will bring minimal stress to you. So, don’t worry; you can pick and choose which activities suit you and your family, or you may just want to enjoy the books. It’s completely flexible – do as much or as little as you’d like!

Ramadan Book Club for Kids

By registering, you participate in an online community as we all share our experiences with the book packs. You’ll even be able to join a virtual meet-up with the authors of the books!
