Indoor Activities Encouraging Creativity in Young Children

Assalamualaikum parents, teachers and beloved readers,

Alhamdulillah, we have passed the 10th days of Ramadhan. May Allah grant us barakah and strength throughout this fasting month. Insyaallah.

We have almost a week left until the end of the school holiday and I’m sure most of the parents are taking this opportunity to prepare for upcoming Eidulfitri with their children. Lots of shopping malls and markets are buzzing with excited children choosing, trying and buying baju raya, shawls, songkok, sampins and so on. In the midst of it all, we must not forget to prioritize our time and energy which is to perform as much ibadah in the spirit of Ramadhan.


I would like to share with you the list of activities that can encourage children’s creativity. These fun and colorful activities are a great way for children to practice their artistic and motor skills while staying indoors. Parental involvement in these activities is very important to monitor your children’s progress and capability in creative imagination. While doing so, don’t forget to use the words of encouragement for your children.

As a mother of five children, I am very passionate about Islamic early child care and education. Alhamdulillah. Besides being a Founder and Executive Director of Integrated Islamic School Shah Alam (IISSA), my path has also taken me into being the trainer, consultant and academic author of The Little Caliphs Program, an Islamic-English-Creative preschool program which I run alongside my husband Haji Roslan bin Nordin.

This creative pre-school curriculum integrates the basic teaching of Islam with other basic knowledge and skills such as reading, writing, drawing, Math, and English. One of my visions among many is to cultivate the ability to read in all young children around the world at the tender age of 4. Furthermore, I would love for this program to be adopted by kindergartens all over the world so that children will have the correct understanding and positive attitude towards Islam, Insya Allah.
