This is part of the 30 Ramadan Acts of Kindness series. For more information, read this introduction.
I made my 3-year-old a Ramadan calender last year, which she absolutely loved! Sadly, the calender got squished in her closet after Ramadan was over. This year, I resolved to make a prettier and more sturdy calender that I can reuse year after year. After perusing Pinterest for hours, I came up with this simple calender using items available at most craft stores.
Foam Board (available in a variety of colors)
30 small takeout boxes (I used two different sizes and a variety of colors, but that’s optional)
Small toys, candies, stickers, or activities (I did combination)
Step 1: Put together the takeout boxes. This usually involves folding the flaps down, but your box may vary.
Step 2: Arrange the boxes on the foam board. I did six rows of five boxes each. Using a pencil, mark where each box should go. Set the boxes aside.
Step 3: Attach the hooks, using the directions provided on the packaging.
Step 4: Fill the boxes with treats and affix the numbers 1-30 to the fronts of the boxes.
Step 5: Hang the foam board on the wall. (I used push pins, but Command Strips would probably look better) Put the boxes on the appropriate hooks.
