Salam,

I want to plan a party for some kids for Eid. Anyone have any ideas for it or game ideas? They'll be aged 5 to 15 years.

Narrated AbuHurayrah:
The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) used to say: "O Allah, I seek refuge in Thee from four things: Knowledge which does not profit, a heart which is not submissive, a soul which has an insatiable appetite, and a supplication which is not heard."

There are some Islamic trivia games..

- Mecca to Madina (trivia game) - http://www.muslimgames.com/
- You could print some coloring pages from here for the young kids - http://www.islamicplayground.com/Scripts/default.asp
- Make your own trivia questions
- Muslim charades.. Have the kiddos act out scenes from the Qur'an and have people guess
- Muslim "Pictionary".. Have kids draw something from Qur'an or hadith and then have people guess what it is

Other than that, there are some 'universal' games all kids tend to like..

- Twister (probably good to be gender separated as this is a fairly physical game)
- Bingo (this is pretty universal from the age of anyone who is really familiar with numbers or pictures or whatever on through adults)
- Memory is also pretty good.. You could make your own memory cards with masjid pictures, etc.

I try to remember to count my blessings each day because I have many:

To be thankful for my health, and that of my loved ones, the presence of my husband and the continuation of our marriage, that we can pay our bills and have food on the table..

So many blessings but often, so little thanks!

salam alakum,
i am canadian muslim convert/revert 7 yrs humdeAllah i married syrian canadian muslim, so eid is very intersting for me to explore and play with especailly since we have onr year old girl humdeAllah.  i read your asking about games.  i have a book (childrens book) its about eid and  they play games one is they wrap a quran many times and pass around a circle of people each person unwraps one layer last one who unwraps the quran keeps it (the quran is a surprise of course). another is little bags of money hidden around the house for the kids to find. or maybe a box of different random gifts wraped up. i would like to try lots of lil boxes all same size with little things in them like: money, toys, hijab clips, pieces of paper with quran or sunna on them. gift certifacates. keychains, prayer beads, stickers, little things that don't cost much but everyone can have something. like a fortune cookie favour idea kind of thing. another game is quran and sunna trivia could copy your own.
hope i gave some good ideas inshAllah have a great eid Cheesy

When we offcially moved to the U.S., I went to an arabic weekend school and we celebrated Eid!

-At the beginning of ramadan or two weeks before Eid, each of us would be given a Surah, or Ayat to memorize   and then on the day of the party we would recite them and receive prizes. (Prizes where personal for each kid, example a kid that loves to draw got colors and art stuff, a girly girl got hair clips).

-Another we would sit in a circle and the host would be in the middle with a list of easy questions, and we would take turns to answer and pick prizes out of a bag and if we wanted to switch a prize we had to answer another question correct.

 -We had a pinnate and you get to hit after answering a question correctly.

-We also had this thing where we would act out a good deed of a muslim would do.
& get prizes or money.

We benefited from the games and had fun!

Assalamu alaikum,

I'm thinking of having an eid party at home for my kids next week and they can invite their little Muslim friends who are sadly few enough. I was wondering would an Eid party be like a birthday party, ie with all the treats and games, just without the birthday aspect? I was thinking of having little prizes for anyone who can say the kalima or al-fateha, that kind of thing? Then I'd have little party bags, I got some nice badges with "Eid Mubarak!" online and would put in some halal sweeties.

Does anyone hold Eid parties for kids or am I off my rocker? My husband says to go for it, though it's not something his culture would do. He recognises however that we're in a different situation here and we need to big it up for the kids as not everyone does it.

Ideas Huh?

Oooooh we have Eid parties, mad rowdy Eid parties,  bouncygrins We have have nasheed chairs, and nasheed statues, and pass the parcel where there is a little gift in each wrapping so every child is a winner (parcel is passed to nasheeds of course), one year I did face painting for the kids (good job the kids weren't terribly particular).

I do cupcakes, and we do finger foods, halal chicken nuggets and chips and juice, or whatever you want.

You could make your own pinata and fill it with little toys and sweets (we've done that).


I am sooo looking forward to Eid woohoo loveshower

We used to invite all our friends Muslim and non Muslim friends just so everyone can be swept away in the joy of Eid  bouncygrins woohoo


I'm considering taking in sweets or cakes to work to celebrate Eid too.....I've been a irritable cantakerous moo today from lack of sleep, my work colleagues deserve a treat for not throwing me out of the window!
