Ramadan Scrapbook Tutorial
This year my girls designed a lovely Ramadan Scrapbook at their weekly Islamic Class. The lovely Michelle, their teacher, showed them exactly how easy these are to make and that they are a great way of of keeping a diary of things that the children have done during the month of Ramadan.
You can use this scrapbook to log anything that you do during Ramadan like a daily diary. I suggest 30 sheets for 30 days of Ramadan or 15 sheets so that you can use both sides for the 30 days of Ramadan. I will be suggesting to my girls to write down anything memorable that day, it could be if they fasted, if they learnt or practised and new surah's or if they had anything yummy to eat that day. They can either draw something on each page or even attach any photos of things they have done.
2 pieces of card (for the front and back)
30 pieces of plain paper (or 15 pieces to use double sided)
A piece of string
A Hole Punch
Glue / Crafts for decorating the front cover.
Step 1: Using one piece of card make a lovely personalised design for your front cover of your scrapbook. You can either draw a design or using glue you can stick craft pieces on to make a unique design.
Step 2: Place the sheets of paper between the 2 pieces of card to make your book. Using a hole punch make the holes. (You may need to punch the card separate if it is too thick)
Step 3: Use a piece of string or ribbon to slot through the holes and tie into a bow to secure the scrapbook together.
For each day of Ramadan you can either write something down that is memorable or stick in some photographs or drawings.
