The first 10 days of Dhul-Hijjah are here. Alhamdolillah, Allaah Ta’aala has given us an opportunity to increase in rewards for our good deeds. For us homeschooling parents, that doesn’t have to mean we put a pause on homeschool. It’s a great time to teach and implement together.


Below is a list of fun and educational ideas to involve your young children in. I hope you find benefit in shaa Allaah.
