VIDEO I love this crytograph for older children that Beb e Kazim shared on FB:
At the top there is a KEY that lists all the letters from A thru Z with a box below. Each of the letters has a corresponding number.
The bottom part contains a maxim of Imam Hussain a.s. Each of the blanks has a number underneath it. Fill in the letters that correspond to the numbers below the blanks to discover it.

The month of birthdays is upon us!
Check out what one inventive mum has done to welcome the month of Shabaan (main pic above). Each star represents a birthday of our noble personalities in this month :). Another mum did something similar using these wooden ornaments: Here is a printable banner you can print, colour and put up for display – it covers all the main events of this month! Here are some worksheets for the month by UmAimen. And here’s a birthday cake for younger children to colour in. Somebody has put together this set of amazing slides for her class which covers all the main events very clearly, and has plenty of activity ideas. (Author unknown) Play this game (for younger children) to teach them which holy personalities’ birthdays we celebrate in this month. Love this craft idea – make an Ark of Salvation to mark the special birthdays in this blessed month! Made with craft paper, kitchen roll tubes and cereal boxes: Kisa Kids produce an annual booklet FULL of ideas and activities to mark the occasions of Rajab and Shabaan. Download them here. This is a lovely magazine on Shabaan by For My Imaan Here is a checklist for things to do in Shabaan by Noor Islamic Education. For older kids, why not play this Kahoot! game created by Arifa Davdani. And here’s an awesome video to watch with the kids to welcome in this month VIDEO
