I thought and thought what could we do this year. We chose to make the Good Deed Tree last year since Ramadan started in the fall. This year I was clueless on what idea we could come up with.
We are starting it a little late, since we had so much other non craft activities to cover, but masha Allah we are in full “good deed” practice.
Since the little ones are older this year I thought to cover a little bit about moon phases and stars in the sky. I guess you can say a little bit of an intro to what is going to come insha Allah. We talked alot about how Allah has created everything including the stars and moon in the sky. They enjoyed the lesson, I can now ask my 5 yr old what kind of moon do we sight at the start of Ramadan and she remembers! Alhamdulilah!
We pasted everything on our bulletin board. The idea is to paste a new star each time one of the little ones does a good deed. They are quite encouraged to please Allah and do as much good as they can. Masha Allah.
This is the full board. You can see we also hung stars from the ceiling. These were fun, we just found the star template. The little ones painted glue on them and sprinkled glitter.We tied a string to them and suspended them from the ceiling. We got our template from Enchanted Learning
Star up close. We used cereal boxes for our template to make the star more sturdy. We Love recycling and reusing!!
The front of the board wher you can see the “GOOD DEED STARS” Sign

Here is our drawn out Masjid. We did not have a template for this, if you decide to make this board you will have to draw out your own insha Allah. This was my part of the project since none of my older children wanted to have a go at it *smile*
The masjid is simply drawn on 4 pieces of copy paper, colored in with markers and we also added some glitter glue to give it a bit of a shimmer.
Here is our border up close.

We saw the sis Umm idris had a nice Cloudscape and she has little Muslims on her back drop so we thought to do the same, such a clever idea masha Allah!

Of course you all know me, I do have a file to share with you in case you would like to use for this or next Ramadan insha Allah.
The borders as well as the “Good Deed” sign, and yellow stars is here Ramadan banners
Here are some black and white stars to have the little ones a little more involved. They can color them in and then paste them for their good deed insha Allah. Good Deed Stars
Now that Ramadan is over here is our Good Deed Bulletin Board full of Good Deed Stars, Masha Allah.
The 3 little ones absolutely loved adding stars on the board all day long!! I was glad to have the older girls to help me keep up with their deeds,masha Allah.
