I LOVE this idea that a mum sent! Check it out:
“Salaam, wanted to share a simple activity you can do with any image. Since it was the Prophet’s birthday, we printed images relating to the prophet (his name and masjid).
Then you take Popsicle sticks (as many as takes to cover photo) and glue with mod poj glue, then put image on top and add another layer of mod poj glue.
Be generous as it dries clear like you see in picture. Then take a box cutter and cut picture between Popsicle sticks and voila you have a DIY puzzle for kids!
You can do any image like Kaaba for Eid ul Adha or Imam Hussein’s shrine on his birthday, etc. I’m planning on taking these to mosque also to keep the kids busy.”

It just takes a little message to make a gift thoughtful! This idea was from Islam from the Start 🙂

- Check out this one by Umm Aiman! Each day is a 4 piece puzzle with 4 good deeds on it to do. Each day, they have to complete the puzzle, colour it in and hang it back on the line! There are some goodies added as an extra treat
To download the puzzles, click here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/12898635/ramadan2016.pptx
- I love this Ankabut calendar! It fills up over the month…
In this advent Calendar, each bag has a good deed to do, a Quranic Word, money for sadka. Bags are decorated to also show days of sadness (black bags) and happiness (glitter bags). Some bags have special presents to help reinforce the extra special days and likewise for the days of mourning.

App No 12: Islamic Academy
So here is a high quality app with excellent graphics, exciting sound effects and smooth game play – and it combines many of the features that have been in the other apps, all in one!
Create up to 5 users, then enter the Academy, where you have the option to either answer quiz questions in many different modes – “Challenge” – answer x questions, “Speed” – answer as many as you can in the time allowed, and “Survivor” – answer until you get one wrong! The questions are randomised and constantly changing to keep you on your toes. (Again, please be aware that some of the questions are fron Ahle-Sunnah, although the majority seem to be relevant to both.)
If you’re tired of the quizzes, then why not click on a Puzzle, a Spot the Difference picture, or Match it (memory)?!
A really unique feature of this app is that it allows players to challenge each other and play multi-player games through the game centre. You can also win trophies and certificates!
A trial is available for free, and then you can upgrade to full membership for only 69p.

App No 11: Kids of the Ummah
Looking for a contemporary, fun app that has beautiful pictures that introduce your children to Muslims in different countries around the world from A-Z? Look no further…!
Kids of the Ummah was the brain child of Peter Gould, an Australian designer who wanted something fresh and different for his children.
Also a book, it is the first in a series of educational apps and books aimed at celebrating Muslim cultures around the world, encouraging exploration and understanding of the alphabet (English & Arabic) and Muslim names through colouring, puzzles and book mode.
Try a little out for free before you decide to buy (for £5.99).
This one’s only for Apple users I’m afraid –
thought it was only fair 🙂
