Ramadan is coming up next month! What do you do to make this time exciting for small kids? I've seen some examples of ramadan calendars online in the past (sort of like advent calendars) and am thinking about making one this year Especially as last year my son started to get interested in joining me for iftar (though of course he wasn't fasting) and talking about fasting. I want to make the holidays memorable, especially since there's so much "competition" in the US from non-muslim holidays, but since my son and I are pretty much on our own, I'm looking for ideas

We have a book about ramadan and eid from national geographic that my son really enjoys, also I have been putting up decorations during ramadan and both eids. I'd like to know more about how other families make the time festive either in the US or at home, aside from things like prayer, etc that my son isn't really old enough to be that involved in.

For Ramadan we decorate the house in white lights and holiday lanterns, we craft stars and moons for windows, made balloon cut out for the wall with values we hold important (be kind, thoughtful, fasting, prayers) on each one.. We have done Surah flowers where we cut out pots and each stem has an ayat and cut out flower tips.. We have also done day links and tear one off on the count down to Eid and lastly a poster board with the dates and some goals we set for the month.. My kids also don't have other Muslim children around so I have tried to make it a festive time for them.
