the week have gone so quickly. I cannot believe it, sadly Ramadan is slipping away...again!!
This week we had our last Ramadan cooking lesson. The boys and I have decided to make a nice fruit salad, we always have a bowl of fruits after our meals! Kids got really busy with washing fruits, peeling, cutting, and preparing a nice fresh bowl of fruit! We used bananas, apples, pears and oranges. We then added some freshly squeezed lemon juice to keep the bananas white and refrigerate until iftar time. Sadly I didn't take any pics as I was too busy looking out for my boys safety!
On another note, we have carried on with our art&crafts craziness of the last 4 weeks or so.
It was now time for some pretty flowers. The boys have not enjoyed this one much...I wonder why?!?
Also some colourful 'eid cards that we made for dh. Pics below!
We carried on with the 15 minutes Qur'an a day and talked about 'eid. We used the book below and learn the dua to say on the day of 'eid and how to perform the prayer.
Last but not least, decorations are on display. For me lots to wash and iron in preparation for the party! All is ready but one thing is bugging me, where would we be going to pray this year? They are in the process of re-building our two local Mosques and so I guess we will have to travel to pray 'eid. I pray to Allah to have a nice day for me and family. Amin.
wa alaykum assalam
