Assalamu Alaikum!

I’m Shaheda from shahedaoprints and I’m a graphic designer with a love of Islamic art. I’ve loved art for as long as I can remember and would often spend hours painting, drawing and crafting as a young girl. I recently started utilising my technical skills as a graphic designer to produce my own prints and artefacts with Islamic themes.

A few months ago as I was passing the children’s’ book aisle in a local department store, I noticed the huge variety of colouring and activity books available. This got me wondering what was out there in the way of Islamic colouring and activity books and somewhere in the back of my mind I thought “Hey, maybe I could design an Islamic activity book!” I didn’t take myself seriously in that moment, but the more I thought about it in the following days, the more motivated I became to make this thought a reality so I set myself a deadline. Due to the deadline I set being close to Ramadan, I thought it was only fitting to theme the book around Ramadan to get children excited about the blessed month and for them to learn a little about Ramadan in a fun and interactive manner.

After weeks of researching, sketching and puzzle-making, alhamdulillah, the Ramadan Fun activity book came to fruition. The book contains colouring pages, crosswords and many other puzzles and activities to keep the little ones entertained this Ramadan while simultaneously allowing them to learn some of the values of this sacred month. I hope many children find joy in completing the activities in the Ramadan Fun activity book. Included is a free printable of one of the activities from the book for your children to enjoy.
