    Create a Meaningful RAMADAN for your KIDS

    Create a Meaningful RAMADAN for your KIDS

    When kids experience Ramadan, they do more than watch their parents fast and help with iftar. During Ramadan, children build important memories which will influence how they feel about Ramadan and other Islamic traditions in later life. As parents, it’s our responsibility to do our best to make these memories and feelings positive, to show an Islamic lifestyle is exciting and fascinating.







    Here at Our Muslim Homeschool, we are introducing the Ramadan Book Club! Aimed at kids aged 4-9, we have gathered stories and activities for you to enjoy with your children throughout the month of Ramadan. Each book and activity has been selected to help you get the most out of this month without adding to your stressful workload!















    This blog post contains affiliate links. For more information, please see Disclaimer.







    Children respond positively to stories – as do most humans. For centuries, cultures around the world have used stories to instil important lessons and sentiments in their communities. For this reason, stories are a powerful resource when trying to teach our children Islamic principles. But how do we find the time to use stories in an efficient way and still make the most of Ramadan for ourselves?







    The Ramadan Book Club for Kids







    We have carefully chosen 4 books for your family to enjoy together during Ramadan – one for each week. Each book wonderfully encapsulates important aspects of Ramadan for your kids to absorb, discuss, and reflect on.







    If you register with The Ramadan Book Club, you receive specially designed book packs which guide you through a range of activities linked with each story we read together. Ramadan can be filled with busy days, and these book packs have been designed to help you bond with your children in a way that will bring minimal stress to you. So, don’t worry; you can pick and choose which activities suit you and your family, or you may just want to enjoy the books. It’s completely flexible – do as much or as little as you’d like!















    By registering, you participate in an online community as we all share our experiences with the book packs. You’ll even be able to join a virtual meet-up with the authors of the books!







    To Join the Ramadan Book Club, CLICK HERE: http://ramadanbookclub.com







    It is completely free to join the Ramadan Book Club, but if you would like to donate to The Olive Mount Project you can do so HERE.







    In episode 39 of the Raising Mums Podcast, I share more about how the Ramadan Book Club will work.

    Choosing Books for Children | What to look for

    Choosing Books for Children | What to look for

    Choosing books for children has never been so hard! With the huge numbers of ever increasing children's books available, deciding which one you're actually going to get is an indomitable task.







    Consider this. When you go to the library, how do you choose from the thousands of books that are there, which ones you'll actually take home? When you stumble across a book online, how do you know if it's a "We've got to have this," or if it's a "Nope. Pass!"?















    Is it just a matter of making an informed decisions by reading the back cover? Should we put our trust in the publisher's social media marketing and influencer reviews? Or do we literally judge a book by its cover?







    In this episode of the Raising Mums podcast, I share three things to look for when choosing books for children.

    Enjoying Nature with Children | Outdoor Activities

    Enjoying Nature with Children | Outdoor Activities

    Being outdoors is good for your children. It's good for everyone! However, finding outdoor activities that you and your children enjoy can be challenging.







    Scientific discovery continues to reveal all the benefits of being outside; including the benefits of sunlight, the microbes in the soil, and even the mood-boosting effect of the colours of nature.















    But as Muslims, we know there is something more. It's not just about looking at nature, but looking beyond it at the One who created it.







    “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” - Albert Einstein







    Despite knowing all the benefits, outdoor activities with children can be stressful. It can even feel weird and awkward! And when the kids get grumpy, you wonder, "What is the point of this?"







    In this episode of Raising Mums, I talk about how you can enjoy nature together with children even if you don't like being outside!
