What have we been up to?

Assalamu alaykum, just a quick update about our last few days and the beginning of Ramadan.
Kids have been busy with art&craft, really busy. They have produced some lovely boxes to give as gifts for their little friends. Mash'Allah! They will fill them up with sweets, dates, raisins etc.
We have been using the book called 'Rainy days activities' by Vivienne Bolton. If you can buy this book do so as is an excellent resource and too easy to follow. Most of the activities use stuff that you can easily have at home.

We have carried on with the Ramadan lapbook, soon to follow pics insh'Allah. This is not our first lapbook, we have produced others in the past including 'All about Trains' , 'All about Spring' , 'All about Autumn', 'All about Dinosaurs' and so many more. But this time, don;t know why, it is taking us loooong than expected. Most probably is the fact that we have to follow Calvert programme and at the same time and find time and energy to complete the lapbook.
We have been using 'My Ramadan fun book' A really nice booklet filled with worksheets. A very useful resource if you don;t have Internet.

What more?
Cooking! Well expected I spent last 2 mornings in the kitchen cooking. Below one of the dishes I made for today's iftaar. The recipe is courtesy of Mimi . Jazakillah sister. 'Chicken, Tomatoes and Beans'

The good thing is that this time around iftaar is so late I end up having so much time in the afternoon to do some good reading.

I have been reading a new book from 'Aid Al-Qarni. 'Muhammad (sallahu alayhe wa sallam) as if you can see him' A dear sister bought this book for me from Makkah as she was there lately for her Umra. I don't know if it is in sale in UK yet.

Wa alaykum assalam
