The month of Dhul Hijja is here, with those fortunate ones heading off for Hajj and those of us at home looking forward to Eid al Adha which is soon approaching. I’ve put together a collection of simple Eid al Adha and Hajj ideas to do with the kids, to help learn about the significance of Hajj and this special month.

Hajj Re-enactment

Ishmael and Family Story Stones

Re-enact the Hajj story with these Ishmael and family story stones from A Crafty Arab, or try the shadow puppets.

This ‘mock Hajj‘ from Confessions of a Muslim Mummaholic is a great idea. Click through to read all of the details they included. What a fun way to learn about Hajj, by doing and experiencing!

Also check out this Hajj re-enactment from Muslim Learning Garden, with detailed Hajj passports that look great!
