Ramadan Bulletin board

Assalamu Alaikum

I wanted to make this Ramadan special for $weety and make her understand the blessing of this month, so due to that I made her a Ramadan Bulletin board with 30 days activity for $weety. I know that the activities are time consuming but I thought this will be the age for it, coz when she gets a little older she has better things to do than crafts and activities. So I thought to enjoy the most with her before she gets five, Inshallah.

I wanted the board to be viewed often so I hanged it in the kids room.So here's our Ramadan Bulletin Board; Sorry for the pics, they aren't so clear.  


 The theme of my kids room is purple and pink, so I made the board to go with it.

The first chart is, the good deed chart ready to be filled with stars I hope so.....lol. So I said $weety this is your sky and its plain with a moon so make it beautiful with stars by doing good deeds and if it is filled you will be getting a gift, I think now it will work...lol.

And the other board contains.....;

The Fasting day cycle downloaded from IBB, I made it without the cover and added a peg to indicate the action.

Things that break fast is also from IBB

To count and color the days or maybe if she fasts will be adding a star sticker.

And this is the moon phase from NoorJanan, will be adding as the moon changes.

You'll be wondering what are the pegs hanging down??

These are the 30 days activity, for each day $weety would turn the card and will be doing that activity Inshallah. Its not a must that we should do it all, it depends on our day and $weety's mood. We do it or we skip it :)

Alhamdulillah we are covering everything and has done some activities so far and also skipped some, If I had time Inshallah I will post the activities in Ramadan or after the month.

Ramadan Mubarak

Assalamu Alaikum

Ramadan prep was going on and I thought I wouldn't finish and Alhamdulillah all was done in time. We made the banner and the Bulletin board. For the banner I printed the letters for "Ramadan Mubarak" in bold and we started to color, even Sm!ley was interested in coloring.


$weety has a taste for color...you can see it.

My young artist 

Sm!ley's master piece...

And these are my designs and $weety thought I was crazy when coloring the "M" letter.

So after coloring I cut the letters, pasted in red and beige colored papers, laced it and hanged in the living room.



I was verry happy seeing my first banner looking lovely with the touch of my little artists and my hubby was surprised when entering home after work and wished us all with a big hug. Alhamdulillah!!..

A wonderful day

Assalamu Alaikum

From the day I homeschool my kid I always dream about a workshop for us, where homeschool children meet to share their joy, have some fun and we mothers get to have a talk about our experiences and see our kids get along with others etc.....the list can go on. But I only know Umm Aaminah and another friend who homeschool, So thought we three can meet up.

After talking with Umm Aaminah we thought to organize and Subhanallah, I was glad to know a few mothers who homeschool too.

So on Rajab 5th 1435 - May 4th 2014 we had our very first Homeschool Workshop at my home. I organized everything and Umm Aaminah was ready with a presentation she made which made the workshop a beneficial one. Some pics to remember;



Arrangements were done for kids to make cards from their own creativity with the materials given, while the presentation was done by Umm Aaminah for mothers.

I packed some goody stuff for the kids

And these were the things inside



And this is the card made by $weety

Alhamdulillah we had a wonderful day and the kids too enjoyed a lot, Umm Aaminah from Almah's journey have given a beautiful post about the workshop with details.

Happy Ramadan For Penpals

Assalamu Alaikum

Subhanallah it's Ramadan 11th, the first days are gone and may Allah accept all the A'maal we did on these days Ameen. 
Before Ramadan we thought to wish $weety's penpal a happy Ramadan. I thought to make a card but $weety suggested the door hanger we did last year. So did it a little different painting by hand.

First cut the board and printed the crescent by hand


And then printed the stars by closing the fingers together 


And then wrote the words "Happy Ramadan"


Decorated with small star stickers 



And finally to add some sparks, I added glitter and attached the ribbons etc...


This card, she made for her new penpal




Wishing all RAMADAN MUBARAK :)
