O Allah, keep me safe until Ramadan, keep Ramadan safe for me, and accept it from me. Aameen.
Oh, Allah! Grant us Barakah (Blessing) during (the months of) Rajab and Sha’ban, and allow us to reach Ramadan. Aameen.
The month of Ramadan is gradually upon us and we pray that Allah (S) spare us till then, grant us all we need to make the most of it and accept all our efforts from us, aameen.
Creating Ramadan inspired activities and crafts with your kids is an awesome way to involve and get them excited about Ramadan. It is important to introduce Ramadan to our children irrespective of whether they are old enough to fast or not. Read this post by Ayeina.com on how to involve the children in Ramadan.
Ramadan craft is also a simple and cheaper way to add few Ramadan inspired decor to your home. This will definitely excite the kids and might even get them to start asking the right questions.
You don’t have to go overboard with the crafts so as not to get yourself and the kids overwhelmed. To enable you to focus on spirituality in Ramadan, choose what you intend to introduce to your child/children about Ramadan or about the deen and find a craft to support that topic. May Allah make it easy for us and them, Aameen.

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الصِّيَامُ كَمَا كُتِبَ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ
O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that ye may (learn) self-restraint
Dua’ for breaking the fast
اللَّهُمَّ اِنِّى لَكَ صُمْتُ وَبِكَ امنْتُ [وَعَلَيْكَ تَوَكَّلْتُ] وَعَلَى رِزْقِكَ اَفْطَرْتُ
O Allah! I fasted for You and I believe in You [and I put my trust in You] and I break my fast with Your sustenance
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسأَلُكَ بِرَحْمَتِكَ الَّتِي وَسِعَتْ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ أَنْ تَغْفِرَ لِي
O Allah, I ask You by Your mercy which envelopes all things, that You forgive me.
