Ramadan Advent calendars are a fairly new Ramadan concept and we are living for it. Not only are they great at getting children into the spirit of Ramadan but they can also be used as a learning tool for them too like a good deed or dua/surah a day calendar. You can find a variety of them online, from the classic calendars filled with chocolates to the more snazzy wooden mosque calendars, plus they also have adult versions too!
We’ve decided to put together a list of Ramadan Advent calendars for kids that are reusable, affordable (there are some great DIY projects on this list too) and are an absolute joy for the kids to be gifted with before Ramadan begins. Just be sure to be quick as some of these shops close just before Ramadan starts!
