The Place for Contemporary and Fun Ideazz and Productzz for the Muslim Family

School/Nursery time

To all those whose children are starting nursery/big school this week – lots of duas and Inshallah all will be well (I already have a lump in my throat!).

Just something I cam across which I thought I’d share: for Good Luck (for us and them!), Sura Nasr is awesome, and for Brain Power, teach them Ar-Rahman (The Most Kind).

Islam from the Start

Alhamdulillah, received a lovely e-mail from someone who was inspired by the Laylatul Qadr box and who had done it at home too!

She has actually recently started a blog called “Islam From The Start – Creative ideas to help instill the foundation of Islamic values to preschool children”, which has some great ideas!

Celebrating Eid: Idea 6 – Sharing it with ‘People that help us’

Celebrating Eid: Idea 6 – Sharing it with ‘People that help us’

Share our celebration by giving out cards and treats to ‘people that help us’ in our community – to reach out to them too, and appreciate them on this day.

We started doing our rounds yesterday and today Alhamd, we managed to wrap that up! Here we are with our local police officers :). We also passed by our local library, doctor’s surgery and fire station.

Why not leave a little something for your postman?

P.S. This is what we left for our postman this year (2021)

And here is our little gesture to the bin collectors!

Celebrating Eid: Idea 5 – Share it with the Neigbours and those around you

Celebrating Eid: Idea 5 – Share it with the Neigbours and those around you

Sharing Eid with our neighbours has been my passion for many years – in fact, one of the very first products created by Buzz Ideazz was a card specifically for non-Muslim neighbours.

We went round to the neighbours today! It started pouring in the middle so we had to take a quick break, but oh well 🙂 This time we took some chocolates (check out these Eid Mubarak ones Guylian has come out with) as I’m all baked out – plus we usually give them baked goods so this was a nice change! Alhamdulillah came back with having caught up with what they’ve been up to, some more phone numbers, feeling more secure (as one of them said our alarm had gone on a few days ago and he had come to check the place out to make sure it was OK), and a warm, fuzzy feeling too 🙂

P.S. Here is our neighbour’s card and treat for this year (2014):

P.P.S. It’s 2021! We’ve been at our house for nearly 15 years now and I’ve tried to mix it up a bit over the years! But it was usually only to the houses closer to us. For the last two years, ever since lockdown began and a WhatsApp group for our entire road was created, we have gifted the entire road a little something. These personalised chocs are what we ended up doing for this year – something small enough to be sustainable, but hopefully meaningful! It was well received, Alhamdulillah 🙂

  • And i absolutely LOVED this Eid of sharing Eid with anyone around by decorating the car full of chocs! The idea was seen on FB (by Dua Kaylani) who said:
    “HAVE FUN THIS EID! The kids just finished this; decorating our car with chocolate – and already a lady walking by asked us what is Eid and took one!”

 

Celebrating Eid: Idea 4 – Have a Treasure Hunt for the Eidi

Celebrating Eid: Idea 4 – Have a Treasure Hunt for the Eidi

Do you have any fun traditions for Eid? A few years ago, our family started doing a treasure hunt for the children on Eid day, with the hunt culminating in finding and opening their Eid present from the family. Now it’s a much-awaited event by all of us, young and old :). Each year the clues keep getting more sophisticated – this year we even did some morse codes, QR codes and audio clues!

Here is an EID TREASURE HUNT available for download, created by TopsInspire.
