Post from Muharram 1435
We nearly missed a couple of very important dates last year
So this year, we’re trying to make a conscious effort in knowing the Islamic dates as much as we know the Gregorian calendar.
We made an A2 kitchen wall calendar,consisting of a pic, a calendar activity and the calendar itself, that is filled out by kids. A great way to practice number writing and counting for little ones.
The A4 calendar in the picture was solely for the purpose of this post, as the A2 calendar contains personal information. We use the A2 as the main family calendar with appt dates, our schedule, smiley faces, sad faces, birthdays etc..
Whenever the new moon sights, we will sit down to make a new calendar for the month.
A great way to show kids when birthday parties they’re invited to coincide with Islamic dates that they’ve filled in themselves and marked as happy or sad.
And do you have dads who sometimes forget and plan meetings and trips on important Islamic dates? Well get them to fill out the calendars with kids, that way the whole family is more attuned to important Islamic dates.
I had done Calendar free templates with the grids, a relevant image and a very short quiz activity (see image above) until the months of Shawwal, but then we found a white board calendar at our local craft store which saved on paper and printing. Would still be happy to create Calendar templates if you find them useful.
Let me know in the comments box.
