Fantastic and awesome. Two words I shall be using frequently to describe the blogger 'Happy Muslim Mama', Umm Saliha's post on the party she gave her daughter for finishing the Qur'an. Bloody awesome.
IDEA 1: Give the boys their own cool 'bachelor' pad complete with games, treasure hunt and non-video-gaming-experiences. Or if it's a boy's party, help the girls make their own secret den.
IDEA 2: Use fantastic decorations to really mark the celebration. Go beyond bunting. Use indoor sparklers, order a custom-made banner or paint one at home. Use lights, fill balloons with small wrapped sweets before blowing up and let the kids pop'em. Yay!
IDEA 3: Make a special 'Qur'an' cake in the shape of a book; go mental with your child's favourite ingredients. A Maltesers cake was made for this party - easy now!
IDEA 4: Decorate cupcakes with 'well done' or 'ma-sha-Allah' messages and edible toppers.
IDEA 5: Set up a dessert table. Set up a healthy snacks table and a drinks table.
IDEA 6: Let children make their own fruit kebabs.
