Alhumdolilah this year we have been blessed with such amazing decor options for Ramadan. Ranging from advent calendars to lawn decor from Days of Eid, to banners and party supplies from With a spin. All of these together probably bring the Ramadan spirit to your home for you, but how do you get your kids excited about Ramadan.
When my daughter brings home art work and I hang it up in our hours, her face lights up. She is so proud and excited to see her work displayed. So why not let your kids help contribute to the Ramadan and Eid decor around the house.
If you pre ordered, My First Quran Activity Book, you will also receive the Lantern Decor Craft Kit along with it. I wanted to show you a few fun ways you can use this kit to decorate your home with you child.
What do you need?
- Four die cut card stock lanterns (included
- Twine (included)
- Tissue Paper
- Chop sticks
The easiest way to use the kit is to make a garland to hang somewhere in your home.
- Have your child thread the twine through the holes provide at the top of each lantern. Threading is a great way to work on fine motor skills!
- Simply tape it up any where in the house! You can have your child help you hold one end up!
This is my favorite way to use the lanterns.
- Glue the tissue paper provided behind the lantern. If you have young kids who can’t use scissors, cut the the tissue paper into small squares so they have many opportunities to be involved in using the glue stick! If you decide to tape the tissue paper whole, remember to trim it.
- You can either hang individual lanterns near the window, or you can make a sun catcher garland or even a mobile!
- Enjoy as the sun light dances in through the lanterns!
This is by far the most involved, so I’d suggest this for older kids!
- Split the chop sticks apart.
- Thread a lantern on each end of the twine and tie a knot.
- Tie the twine onto the chop stick for each of the lantern.
- Thread the lantern through and tie a knot.
- Hang it up and let the wind make the the lanterns twirl!
