Ramadan is here! For those who are fasting, I hope your first fast went well yesterday. I’m joining in again with the Ramadan for Kids series with Multicultural Kid Blogs and today I’m featuring some Ramadan decoration ideas, including calendars which seem to have become really popular the last couple of years. They are a great way to get your children excited about Ramadan.
