Ramadan Mubarak! Ramadan snuck up on me, again. I always have it in my mind that it’s ten days earlier and I theoretically know it’s coming up, but then two days before, I am scrambling. Luckily I had a few things working for me. One, I had the weekend. Two, Party City. Three, I have an awesome ten year old who is super helpful. With all three I managed to put up our decorations, read on for some Ramadan Decor Ideas for your home.
Party City Ramadan Decorations
I was so excited Party City started a line of Ramadan and Eid decorations last year. However, I don’t think they anticipated the excitement around them because by the time I made it to the store everything was sold out! This year I ran over as soon as I learned they were in stock. Unfortunately they’ve run out of most items online (come on Party City, you should have known!), but it seems they are available in select stores.
Sharing Ramadan With Teachers
My kids attend public school, so sharing such a deeply religious holiday can be tricky. My son’s Kindergarten teacher asked if she could borrow a book to read to the kids. I like ‘It’s Ramadan, Curious George’ so I made a basket to include the book as well as a couple of other treats for all of the Kindergarten teachers at his school.
Other Ramadan Decor Ideas
I bought these items last year from Amazon and I pulled them out again this year.
My kids are growing to like this calendar every Ramadan. This year instead of treats we are putting money in there. Each child receives $2 a day if they are able to complete the tasks. They must put at least $1 in a box for charity, they can decide what to do with the other one. It is amazing to see the generosity in these kids’ hearts. They have put multiple dollars in there and are already thinking about where they will donate the money.
I pulled these star lights out of the box but I am still working on getting them untangled. Just as last year, they are totally staying up until the next Eid!
What are some of your favorite places to find Ramadan and Eid decorations? I’m always on the hunt for new things to add to our collection, please share!
