Crescent Moon and Star

What You Need:

  • Construction paper (black and yellow)
  • Glue stick
  • Pencil
  • Scissors

What You Do:

  1. Does your child know about the mesmerizing movements of our moon and how it tells us when Ramadan begins? Explain that the moon goes through phases and that the crescent moon appears as a sliver at the start of a new moon phase. A waxing crescent moon comes right before a full moon, and a waning crescent signals that the moon will soon disappear before reappearing in a new moon phase. The waning crescent phase is important as it marks the beginning of Ramadan.
  2. Have your child draw a large crescent moon in pencil onto black construction paper. Ask them to draw it as large as possible.
  3. Encourage them to draw stars using a pencil on the yellow paper. They can draw as many stars in different sizes as they can fit on the page.
  4. Have them carefully cut out each star using a pair of scissors.
  5. Arrange the stars inside their pencil drawing of the moon and glue them in place.
  6. Arrange and glue the last star outside of the moon off on the side as shown in the image. This signifies either the planet Venus or completes the symbol of Islam.
