ISLAMIC RELIEF CANADA presents our
Activity Kit for Smart Kids
Welcome! With schools closing to protect against Covid-19 and kids home all day, we want to help bring some fun and ease to your family as everyone copes with these uncertain times.
Especially with the month of Ramadan coming up very soon, we’ve prepared a full Activity Kit to help keep your kids busy in these weeks, and help your family prepare for this special month.
This kit is filled with exciting activities for all ages from crossword puzzles, colouring pages, and connect-the-dots, and many with an Islamic perspective! Use it to help your kids stay active during the next couple of weeks, and refresh their memories on the beautiful aspects of Ramadan.
We look forward to enjoying the blessings of this Ramadan with you again this year and InshaAllah overcoming these difficult times.
