It has been so lovely to be able to host a range of Guest Bloggers Ramadan Crafts for Kids this year! I am so looking forward to expanding this very special Ramadan Crafts for Kids collection of the years to come.. as well as add a special Eid Ideas celebration section. But, baby steps it is.. and for now, I would like to sum up the past few weeks with an overview of lovely kids crafts and Ramadan decor to make!
For most of the crafts shared here today, you simply need some scissors, paper or construction paper, glue… some card stock and some recycled materials from your recycling box! Stickers and embellishments are also always fun. We don’t have many templates – but I will look to add some over time.
The crafts shared here today, can be made during the holy month of Ramadan or specificially at the end of Ramadan or as Eid Ideas.
As mentioned, the crafts shared here today, where created by fellow muslim crafters. These are activities that they like to do with their children. It is a great opportunity to discover and follow new crafters on instagram. So at each stage, I mention both the craft article, as well as the instagrammer for you to follow and check out!
