Sadaqa: Good Deed Jar

This project is from one of our contributors.  She recycled a clean jar and then labeled it with paper and tape.  After the jar is decorated she encourages her children to show kindness and help people beginning in the home.  Then the children can write the good deed on a slip of paper and put it in the jar.  Once the jar is full she will read to the children as a treat.

This is an excellent way to encourage children to contemplate charitable actions and we hope to see many more of these projects as Ramadan approaches.  

My boys were inspired to make their own jars from empty spice jars.  They also thought these would be easier to fill:


Please share your ideas for teaching children about the practice of Sadaqa in Islam.
