Talking to your toddler about Eid ul Adha

 

 

The story of Prophet Ibraheem (AS) isn’t a simple story. It involves doubt, faith, sacrifice and death. None of which are easy concept to explain to a toddler. What’s more, most of these topics open up a can of worms most parents are simply not ready to address! I have a few strategies to help you talk to your kids about it.

I have actually made a cute whiteboard animation to help explain the topic! I would recommend watching this together with your child. It’s less than 2 mins, perfect for those short attention spans.
