Ramadan Jewelry with Kid Made Modern
Kid Made Modern’s new “Mystic Jewelry Kit” is a great craft kit for Ramadan/ Eid al Fitr. I especially love that it comes in a star shaped box, which is perfect for this holiday since many of Ramadan’s traditions take place at night!
Today I’m going to share 3 different crafts you can make for Ramadan or Eid al Fitr with this jewelry kit.
1. Star Studded Hijab Pins
Whether you’re attending services at the mosque during Ramadan or taking part in Eid prayers, this is holiday where you’re likely to bust out your favorite scarf. Kids can make these simple hijab pins for their own scarf or even to gift – Grandma will probably love the handmade gesture!
Here I’ve used simple safety pins (not included in the kit) and two types of stars from the kit. The first is a metallic golden starburst and the second is a purple bead (in keeping with the holiday colors).
Then, I’ve simply used Kid Made Modern glue to attach one star on top of the other and then attach on to the back end of the pin. And voila! Simple, festive hijab pins for the holiday.
2. Crescent Moon Necklace
The month of Ramadan begins and ends with the sighting of the crescent moon (new moon). Mark the occasion with a crescent moon necklace. There are so many beads included the kit, kids will love playing around with the various combinations to make their own Ramadan necklace. It’ll look great with their Eid clothes too!
The beads I used from the kit for this necklace were the round pearl like beads, the yellow cylinder beads and the purple star beads. I strung them all together on the blue/purple string included in the kit. For the dangling pendant, I first put the string through a pearl bead, then through the pendant and then back up the pearl bead so it hangs nicely from the necklace.
3. Night of Power Bracelet
The kit includes these tiny angel wing beads and when I saw that I immediately thought of the Night of Power. According to tradition, this is night when angels descend on earth and “peace there is till dawn”. To celebrate the Night of Power with kids, try this simple craft. Use the angel wings to encourage conversation about the Night of Power and to explain the ways that angels are similar and ways they are different in Islam compared to the angels they may see in our local popular culture.
To make this bracelet, once again I’ve stuck with holiday colors. I’ve picked out purple and yellow mini beads from the kit as well as a purple star. I used the light purple string included in the kits and created a pattern with the angel wings and mini beads and centered it off with a star to represent the Night of Power.
