I remember creating chain links in elementary school to decorate our classroom for the holidays. It's fun, easy, and oh my - you get to use a stapler! There's something about homemade decorations that truly make an artful display. So when I found this idea on one of many blog sites for children's Ramadan activities - I was thrilled.
Aaron cut out our strips of construction paper and the kids got busy...
It was fun to see them work together, choosing which colors should go next, and even helping to shape the loops while I stapled them. The idea is to remove one loop for each day of Ramadan - to let the kids visually anticipate and feel the last day of Ramadan nearing, when we will celebrate our Eid festivities.
