Resources & Tips For a Fun Filled Eid

Wow! Can you believe another Ramadan is almost here??? Alhumdulilah! This time of year brings about such excitement, as we busy ourselves in preparation for this blessed month. We’re planning our crafts, readjusting our schedules, planning iftars and sahoors, lesson planning and preparing ourselves both mentally and spiritually. May Allah move us all to work for the bounties and endless blessings that this month has to offer.

Just as we prepare ourselves to have a beneficial, and productive Ramadan, just as much energy, goes into making sure that Eid is joyous and festive as well. Whether you’re in charge of planning Eid for your immediate family or your entire community, Eid planning can create quite a rigorous routine. We’re usually running about buying new clothes, and gifts. We have menus to plan, halls and rooms to decorate, invitations to send, and children’s activities to coordinate. Ahh, yes! We are all pleasantly busy. :-) It’s definitely a labor of love for me, and so many families during Ramadan and Eid.

As with my Ramadan and Eid activity planning, I have found the Internet to be my best friend when it comes to finding great ideas and inspiration. Alhumdulilah!
