Ramadan is on it’s way and I have shared our Ramadan Jar craft over at Multicultural Kid Bloggers to launch our collaborative Ramadan series. A Ramadan jar is a simple Ramadan activity for kids that you can use to hold slips of paper and pick one out each day. One idea is for the slips of paper to contain a good deed to do for the day, another way to use them would be to write a short ayah or hadith on each paper as a reflection for the day, or you can use them to pick out a fun Ramadan craft or activity to do with the children that day.

Today I’m going to share a list of good deed ideas that you can print to cut out and fill up your Ramadan jar. The concept is pretty similar to a jar full of small acts of kindness, so if you are not Muslim and don’t celebrate Ramadan you could adjust this idea to fit your own family better.
