How to Spend a Productive Ramadan with Kids

Ramadan is a beautiful time for reflection, devotion, and family bonding. It’s a period filled with opportunities to instill love and understanding of Islamic values in our children, making it meaningful and memorable for them. This year, let’s explore how we can make Ramadan productive and engaging for our little ones, with a special focus on utilizing the Atlasia Kids March issue – Ramadan Journal to enhance the experience.

1. Praying and Connecting with the Community

Praying together is a profound way to deepen the bond with your child and instill a love for Islam. The act of praying together, as well as visiting the mosque, can significantly enhance your child’s connection to their faith and the Muslim community. Utilizing the Atlasia Kids Ramadan Journal’s dua of the day feature can add a structured and educational element to this practice.

2. Storytelling and Reflective Reading

Ramadan is the perfect time to delve into storytelling and reflective reading with your children. Encourage them to share their favorite stories from the Quran or tales that embody the character of praiseworthy figures. The Atlasia Kids Ramadan Journal offers a unique feature – a daily Ramadan journal page that includes a new Hadith of the day, allowing for meaningful discussions and reflections on the exemplary character of the Prophet (PBUH) and acts of kindness.

3. Fostering the Spirit of Giving

Sadaqah, or charitable giving, is a cornerstone of Ramadan. Engage your children in acts of kindness and charity by using the Atlasia Kids Ramadan Journal to track and plan these activities. The journal includes a gratitude reflection section and suggestions for acts of kindness, which can be a wonderful way to encourage empathy and generosity. Moreover, creating and decorating a Sadaqa jar can become a cherished family tradition.

4. Educational and Fun Activities

This Ramadan, seize the chance to enrich family bonds and impart Islamic values through enjoyable and meaningful activities. The Atlasia Kids Ramadan Journal offers a variety of family-centered pursuits like puzzles, DIY projects, and cooking recipes. These activities are crafted to promote hands-on learning and togetherness, ensuring a Ramadan filled with joy, education, and unforgettable family moments.

5. Cooking Together for Iftar

One of the most heartwarming ways to connect with your children during Ramadan is by cooking together. Whether it’s preparing their favorite meals or trying out new recipes from the Atlasia Kids Ramadan Journal on the recipe pages, this activity not only teaches valuable life skills but also instills a sense of responsibility and charity.

When planning your iftar menu, make use of the weekly iftar planning (pg. 23) of the journal. It helps in deciding what to prepare, making it easier for your kids to look forward to their chosen iftar meals. Don’t forget to use the Atlasian placemat for a special touch when setting the table.

6. Involving Kids in Ramadan Preparations

Involving your children in Ramadan preparations makes the experience more inclusive and exciting for them. From sending out iftar party invitation cards available in the Atlasia Kids Ramadan Journal to planning the iftar party itself (pg. 19), these activities help children understand the importance of community and sharing joyous moments with loved ones.

This Ramadan, let’s make a concerted effort to engage our children in activities that are not only fun but also imbued with Islamic values. By incorporating the Atlasia Kids Ramadan Journal into our daily routine, we can provide our children with a rich, educational, and enjoyable Ramadan experience that they will cherish for years to come.


May this Ramadan be a time of growth, reflection, and joy for you and your family. Ameen.
