One great idea to help mark Ramadan is to have a countdown calendar. I will share specific ideas of what parents do every year on another post, but here i would like to compile some ideas of different types of calendars:
- Cloth calendars: These have boomed over the last few years – check out this very reasonable one: https://eidparty.co.uk/collections/ramadan-calendars – or you could just make your own!
2. Now there are also chocolate/candy calendars out for the month! Some are available through main stores, and others through individuals. I suggest you do a google search and see what comes up! Check out this one:
3. Check out this twist on an advent calendar – where the emphasis is on giving during the month.
Try and find a charity near you that is running one! If not, simply collect some items over the month in a box (one a day!) and hand it to a food bank.
4. Make your own! There are LOADS of ideas out there – and we have also shared them here on Buzz Ideazz for inspiration. Check them out here.
