Fun Things to Do with the Kids this Eid-ul-Fitr 2023
1. Create a Kid’s Arabic Themed Corner with Palm Trees
A great way to make Eid memorable for kids is to create a special place they can play with their cousins and friends. Adults need to remember that the dining room or living room is filled with grownups having adult conversations, and children become bored. Before the Eid festivities begin, why not have your child create a tent with Arabic-themed décor they made themselves? They can even make date palm trees from a few every day available craft items you can find at home.
2. Create Multilingual Banners and Decor
Introduce the international aspect of Eid celebrations by having children make Eid greetings in different languages to hang all over the house. Not only will they learn a new language, but they will also learn how many Muslim countries they are all over the world. This is a beautiful Eid tradition that you can introduce in your family that can be passed on to each child as they become old enough to do it.
3. Read an Eid Story with Your Kids
Why not read Eid stories with your children? This is a great way to engage with your child and learn about the different kinds of Eid books for children. We have a great list of Eid books for children you can buy online that have been listed below. Purchase them before the Eid al-Fitr celebrations so they will be in your home when you need them.
4. Have your Kids Participate in Giving Eid Gifts
One of the essential things about Eid-ul-Fitr is making children aware of everything they should be grateful for. You can do this by creating Eid gift boxes to distribute to charities or among children in the neighbourhood. The act of giving is one that children will learn by example, and making the opportunity for them to give to others is an essential principle of Islam.
5. Involve Kids in Food Preparation and Platters
When preparing food, why not have your kids make something so that when guests come, they can show off their culinary skills? This teaches children some quick, easy recipes and involves them in the Eid-al-Fitr celebrations and makes them feel that they have contributed.
