Dervish Dolls: Moonsighting

This is the first post in our series for Ramadan where our little dervish teaches us about the rites of Ramadan and the blessings of Islam.  Our intention with this series is to demonstrate different ways to use toys and creative play to educate and entertain Muslim children.  

Today our little dervish is showing us how we determine that Ramadan has begun and our month of fasting starts the next morning.  

If you are interested in purchasing a Dervish Doll they were commissioned by Sirajunmunra from WaldorfMagicGlade on Etsy.  The seller does beautiful work and we were so happy to receive our dolls.    If you contact her in advance she can customize your doll by color.  The shop is in the Ukraine so please consider shipping time if you are looking for an Eid gift.  

Please share your ideas for teaching children about Islam with creative play.
