Month of Ramadan Activity Cube - 30 Day Craft Challenge

Month of Ramadan Activity Cube - 30 Day Craft Challenge

Salam once again! Here I am sharing a different way to countdown to Eid as well as a way to make sure we do at least one activity a day. I was lucky enough to have a box in my garage that was an ideal size and shape but any moderate sized box should do the trick! Thank you so much for following us along on this journey. I'll be posting daily reminders on my Instagram account to keep you all in the loop, follow me at @WishfulWaufa.

  • Cardboard box - ours was approximately 30cm x 30cm x 30cm - you can choose any size that works for you.
  • Construction Paper
  • Sharpie Marker
  • Tape
  • Scissors

  1. Fold the flaps of your box inside so that they stay inside and the box remains open at all times. Tape if necessary. 
  2. Cover the outer parts of the box. We did this by taping construction paper all around.
  3. Cut 30 squares of construction paper approximately 10cm x 10cm. 
  4. Label each square with the Day. (Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, etc) until you reach 30.
  5. Write the craft you wish to do on the inside of each square or directly on to the box. I chose to write the activity on the box. I also write the activity on the day we make the craft. This way I have enough time to prepare before hand. And no one can sneak peak!
  6. Tape the top of each square to the box like a flap (see picture below for reference).
  7. We were able to fit 8 squares on three sides of our cube and 6 on the last side to equal 30 days in total.
  8. Have your children remove the flap right before you begin your craft. Watch the excitement in their eyes!
Note: on the inside of the box you can either keep the craft supplies you'll need each day, or keep the finished products as the days go by. It would be nice on the 30th day for them to look into the box and see all of their marvelous work all together - so rewarding! 

A nice little storage area inside!

Thanks for visiting!

3D Masjid Craft - 30 Day Ramadan Craft Challenge

3D Masjid Craft

Salam fellow crafters and Ramadan Mubarak! Being in isolation with my three kids has pushed me to make this year's Holy Month extra special. After being inspired by the talented accounts of @KidsandThingss and @AcraftyArab on Instagram, I decided to do one simple craft or activity with the kiddos everyday of this Blessed Month. The following craft was inspired by the following Youtube link, click here.

I would love it if you can follow along with me this month! Follow me on Instagram, @WishfulWaufa for daily reminders!

  • Masjid Template (see image below)
  • Thick Cardstock x 2 (any colour of your choice)
  • Scissors
  • Stickers/embellishments
  • Optional: Glue to secure the decorations 

  1. Print masjid template (see below). You can also draw your own template.
  2. Trace the template on each cardstock paper.
  3. Cut out the masjid on each cardstock.
  4. On one masjid cut a line right down the middle to its midpoint.
  5. On the other masjid cut a line from the bottom up to its midpoint.
  6. Decorate Masjid however you please. We used gemstone stickers
  7. Once you’re happy with the decorations, slide the masjids into each other through the lines that you cut. (Note: the Masjid should be able to stand on its own)
  8. Add this piece to your Month of Ramadan decorations!

Hanging Moon Phase Decoration

Hanging Moon Phase Decoration - 30 Day Craft Challenge

Salam and welcome to Day 2 of the Ramadan Craft Challenge! As many of you know, I have three little ones at home with me. With this new found inspiration to craft once a day with them, I knew that it had to be easy, cheap, short and sweet! After completing this craft today, my eldest son (6 years old) said, "Mama, I am so proud of myself". That expression brought so much joy to me, knowing that he's learning that he can make amazing things all by himself. I hope you are able to follow along and complete this craft with your little ones. Feel free to leave a comment if you would like me to add more information! You can also leave a comment on Instagram on any of the pictures @WishfulWaufa.
