Ramadan is appraoching us real quick, are you all getting prepared????
I have been working on projects ideas for the kids to keep them busy, insha Allah. We all know that at times the younger children can be more than a handful for a fasting person!! I put together a Ramadan Memory game to keep my lil ones hands busy!
We made two sets, one in color and one in black and white that can be colored.
This is the face down of the colored memory cards.

More of the colored cards.
I tried to capture some of the important aspects of Ramadan so while we play, I can explain to kids what that card means to us during Ramadan.
One more up close of three of the colored cards.
We took and glued the cards on non corrugated cardboard. I found mine from a back of a finger painting pad. I also plan on laminating mine, insha Allah.
Here are the black and white ones. I had my 5 yr old color them in. She enjoyed quiet time coloring them. She used crayon, although I think marker may have been better. *smile*
Here are three of the cards colored
We just printed these cards on cardstock instead of gluing them to cardboard to show you the difference .
Three more cards that were colored.
The difference in both
The difference again
The cards were simple to make and really give my kids something to pre-occupy their time with. I take this game and turn into a lesson by talking to them about each card then ask them what the card says after I have already explained it to them.
Here are the files I used to make these.
Please enjoy them!
