Last Minute Moon Resources

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

*Post Updated!*

I just found these Moon resources and as the last 10 days of Ramadan approaches insha'Allah, I hope to help children see how the completion the moon's phases will look as this blessed month comes to an end. Using these cards: Phases of the Moon Cards; Phases of the Moon Template , I made this file folder game for toddlers 2-4 years old. It's a hide and seek moon matching file folder game.

The index cards on the right and left hand flaps have little Velcro circles on them. The child opens any flap he/she wishes and they will find a card showing a phase of the moon inside insha'Allah (see below).

Each moon card also has a Velcro circle on the back. They take the card out and find its match on the board (which also has Velcro on each moon too).

The inspiration for this game came from here.

(NEW) And try this great idea too insha'Allah! Reader Submission - Sis Alena: Last 10 Days of Ramadan Count Down Activity (Pictures Included!). You can also use these nice resources too insha'Allah:

Animated Phases of the Moon simulation (from NASA...this is nice but more for kindergarten aged children)

Moon Phases Powerpoint (Nice!) Scroll all the way down to the end of the page insha'Allah

Enjoy insha'Allah!

  2. Fun hands-on activity to help young children learn the Phases of the Moon. Thank you so much for sharing.
