As Ramadan is approaching, parents across the world are preparing for this blessed month in different ways. One of the most useful preparations is to make sure that you have enough activities to occupy your children while you might be busy with prayer, study or home duties. There are some great Ramadan books available, as well as lots of different colouring activities that you can print out for your kids.
Another great idea is to download some fun, beneficial apps for your kids to play with! Instead of playing just any old app, opt for an app designed especially for Muslim kids – one that will keep them entertained and out of your way, but ALSO give them some valuable learning experiences and maybe even teach them a thing or two!
