Creative and Fun Ramadan Crafts for Kids

Ready to learn a little more about Ramadan? Ramadan craft ideas can be a fun and educational way to engage children in the spirit of the holy month. They are a great way to teach children the fundamental ideas of Ramadan in a hands on way. These easy ramadan crafts are great for kids of all ages. I’m sharing a handful of ideas like paper plate crafts, star shaped crafts and other fun activities that revolve around the holy month of Ramadan. Maybe these ideas will even inspire you to create your own Ramadan corner in your home.

We talk about crafts revolving around the Christmas here on the blog, but we also want to share about other religions as well.

What is Ramadan?

In 610, the angel Gabriel appeared to Prophet Muhammed and gave him the first revelation of the holy Quran, the Islamic holy book. This is believed to have happened during Ramadan.

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and is considered one of the holiest months for Muslims around the world. During Ramadan, Muslims observe fasting (sawm) from dawn until sunset.  Ramadan is a time for spiritual reflection and worship. Muslims are encouraged to read the Quran, engage in prayer (salat), and perform acts of charity (zakat and sadaqah). The month culminates in the celebration of Eid al-Fitr, a festival that marks the last day of Ramadan.

The exact dates of Ramadan vary each year, as the Islamic calendar is based on the lunar cycle, which is about 11 days shorter than the Gregorian calendar.

If you want to wish someone a good start of Ramadan, it is normal to say “Ramadan Mubarak“, which means “Blessed Ramadan.”
