The Best of Ramadan
Posted on April 28 2022
Ramadan Mubarak from the Zeena family! From cooking healthy meals to gift ideas and decor, we've talked a lot about Ramadan over the years. Today on Zeena Uncovered, we've dedicated this entire post to giving you a complete roundup of all of our favorite topics from Ramadans past & present. During these last few days, we hope these posts inspire you to craft something new, try a new recipe or start a new family tradition. We hope this time of peace and blessings fills your homes with joy!
Make Time for Family
While the pandemic might be slowing down, many families prefer to celebrate the final days of our holy month quietly at home. Make lasting memories in your own backyard by planting an Eid garden, hosting an iftar picnic or crafting handmade gifts with your little ones with two of our favorite posts: 5 Creative Ideas for Celebrating Ramadan at Home and Getting our Kids Involved During Ramadan.
Here are a few tips from our Zeena moms on how to build wonderful memories for our children and inspire a love for Ramadan at any age:
- Craft a Ramadan countdown calendar leading up to Eid al'Fitr.
- Fill baskets with special books, activities, and printable coloring pages to keep your child busy while they fast.
- Volunteer together at a local soup kitchen, animal shelter or masjid.
- Organize a park clean-up with your child's schoolmates and other parents.
With relatives visiting from out of town and the kids taking a few days off from school, what better way to put all that restless energy to work than to create a beautiful iftar together. We love sharing and swapping recipes with family and friends. Here are a few ideas from our dinner table we know you'll love...and the best part is, they're easy!
