Painting and Decorating Ramadan Stars

As a fun Ramadan activity you can paint and decorate our wood ornaments.  Use any type of paint suitable for wood, and depending on how much work you want to put into it, you can sand them (remember to wipe afterwards) , use primer before painting and afterwards use a sealer/ top coat for protection. For the stars below we just used spray nothing else: When the paint was dry our little helpers decorated the stars with glitter and stickers: Try to explain 'less is more' to a 4 year old: For this project we used our wooden FEZ (click here) and ALHAMBRA...

Ramadan Moon Clock

SUHUR

SUHUR

Suhur (arabic سحور,  suḥūr, lit. "dawn", "pre-dawn meal") is an Islamic term referring to the meal consumed early in the morning by muslims when fasting during or outside the Islamic month of Ramadan. After finishing tahajjud and making the final du'a  families often come together for a light meal.  We created the candle holder SUHUR for this special time. When lit during the night the sunrise and stars shines bright and while waiting for the sun to rise and shine the natural glow from the candle starts to fade. Likewise the candle holder can be used at maghrib time, when waiting for...
