Ramadan is here and it’s a great time to make sure your kids learn more about Islam and teachings of Muhammad SAW. Just because your kids are not fasting, that doesn’t mean they cannot do good deeds in Ramadan. Ramadan for kids is equally significant like adults. You can involve them in different Ramadan activities like DIY good deeds jar for kids, good deeds chart, salah tracker, and a lot more.
My little one is 5 years old and he is not fasting but I encourage him to participate in more fun activities and good deeds to do during Ramadan. It keeps him busy and he learns a lot. Double bonus!
I just want my kids to learn the significance of Good deeds for Ramadan in Islam and that’s why I think Ramadan is the best month to do it. It’s been few years, every Ramadan, we do this. Pick one good deed and follow it. I remind him if he forgets.
Kids are quick learners. During Ramadan, you can help them in strengthening their beliefs, blessings and teaching them the importance of good deeds in Islam.
Doesn’t matter if your kids are little, they observe everything. I have 2 boys and both were toddlers when I started teaching them about importance of good deeds. I used to tell them, say Alhamdulillah not because just its ethical, but because it makes Allah happy too. They are still learning but the point is, you can start teaching them these small things ?

The biggest advantage during Ramadan is that your actions will motivate the kids more to do better. We all try to be our best during this Holy month. We fast, offer prayers on time, recite Quran, don’t fight, keep peace, help others, do sadqa more. All these actions are great ideas to teach kids by involving them and teaching them the best deeds in the eyes of Allah.
Don’t force kids to do good deeds in Ramadan, encourage them instead.
Keep in mind that don’t expect a lot from kids. If you force them to do good deeds, you are killing the purpose. Show them how to do a good deed and tell them that they will be rewarded. As kids love rewards, they will be emotionally invested and that’s how kids will learn. How simple!
Every Ramadan, we make a jar of good deeds.
We write one good deed everyday and fill the jar. I make it a challenge for my kids to do atleast one good deed everyday. They end up doing so many, haha so our jar is always overflowing. This idea is similar to the kindness jar. Just the difference is, it is for Muslim kids and we are doing it in Ramadan.
This year I am sharing my list of good deeds to do in Ramadan with you all. There is a printable that you can easily download at the end of the post. It’s FREE. Consider it a gift from me to your kids this Ramadan. ?
Good deeds chart for kids
Print the good deeds pdf mentioned under this post.
You can simply paste it on your wall.
Pick a place where kids spend more time, so that they get to see the chart most of the time.
Ask them to do a good deed one day. And tick the box when its done.

DIY Good deeds jar for kids
You can make a jar too. Download the printable and when you print it.
Get a cookie jar or even a masor jar or empty cereal box. Anything that’s easily available.
Personalize the jar by writing the name of your kids and their artwork.
Cut the small boxes from the Free printable and use one each day.
Make it a fun activity by filling the jar of good deeds in Ramadan.
Anything that your kids love, add that too. Glitters, paint, colors, stickers, let them do it.
Keep sweets or rewards if needed
If you have toddlers, involving them in good deeds activity may be a challenge. So you can involve them by offering them rewards in the shape of candies or chocolates. Don’t overdo it. Good deeds should be done without any reward concept. But if your kids need a little push, do it. There is no harm in it ?
