Ramadan is finally upon us! I have an ibaadat plan as long as my right arm, and a list of chores as long as my left arm. I often wish that I had an extra hour everyday, and maybe an extra day between Saturday, and Sunday. That's all I'd need to stay on top of my to do lists.
So it goes without saying that I always need ways to occupy my kids, I'm sure you do too. This easy colour matching activity took just a few minutes to set up, and occupied my troop for quite some time!
Here's what you need:
4 sheets of coloured paper (I used blue, yellow, pink, and green paper)
Our free Masjid printable, which is at the bottom of this post.
A pair of scissors
A glue stick
A paper clip
Some bits and pieces to sort (I used buttons and beads)
Something to store all of your bits and pieces (I used a paper plate)
How to set it up:
Print four copies of the free masjid printable on four different colours of paper.
Cut some of the excess paper off (this step is completely optional)
Fold the masjids in half, joining the right and left sides.
Using your glue stick, stick one half of each masjid to another masjid. Leaving two halves unstuck. (leaving one side unstuck, makes the whole thing collapsible, which is quite useful for storage)
Join your two unstuck sides using the paperclip.
How to use it:
Provide your little ones with various coloured bits and pieces. I like to contain these items in either a container or a paper plate.
Ask them to match the colours of the items to the different sides of the masjid.
Sneak off and get some ibaadat done! And please remember me in your duas.
