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. Little ones will love to see the house decorated and adorned ready to welcome in this special month, even more so if you get them involved in putting together and creating some of these simple Ramadan decorations.
If you want to get prepared you can also check out our list of Ramadan dinner ideas, to get ready for Iftar.
These days there is an amazing selection of Ramadan decorations available in shops, especially online.
However, you may also choose to take the time to make you own so we have put together a selection of easy Ramadan decorations to make, and what’s more it’s lots of fun and bonding to make these together with the children. Kids of all ages will enjoy the whole experience!

Make your own dangling lanterns, or masjid and mosques with beautiful minarets, a colorful banner, celestial shapes, or decorate with the 99 names of Allah.
Ramadan is here, the month of mercy, and the month of Laylatul Qadr, and it’s time to make the most of this special month.
Lots of DIY Advent calendar ideas can be adapted for Ramadan. You will need to make a calendar with 30 pockets / doors / boxes / windows or whatever you choose to use.
Or you could even do a special calendar for the last 10 days.
