Ramadan Moons

One of our favorite Ramadan decorations are paper mâché moons made with balloons, paper, a flour/water paste and silver paint.

After hanging the decorations we did some experiments with a flashlight and some round objects to see how the shadow of the earth creates the shadows of the moon phases.

We watched this you tube video to review the concept: Lunar Cycle.

To illustrate the lunar cycle for our decorations we made garlands this year.

Please share your ideas for teaching children the rites of Ramadan.
