Ramadan Decorations and Calendars

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.

  1. Great way to greet Holy Ramadan! I liked this. Actually, we should introduce this culture so our kids also absorb these rituals from us. I was looking for some resources like http://kfoods.com/ramadan-calendar-timings/ to get actual Sehr timings for 2016 my city and found your Ramadan calendar and decorative items, which made me stop by at this page. I liked it!
