I wanted to teach Aaminah about the Moon Phases last Ramadan, but I could not find anything simple and age appropriate. She was 3 and a half last Ramadan. So I made the Moon Phases myself. and I updated the file this year and we did the moon phases again. Aaminah really enjoyed the activity. She now knows the names of a few phases of the moon MashaAllah. She explained the moon phases to her father after we did the chart. At night we also used a torch and balls to understand why the moon has phases.
These are the pics from last year.
Here are the pics from this year.
You can download the pdf file for the Moon Phases here :SimpleMoonPhasesChart
You have the option to print out a colorful Earth or a black and white one to color in. You can also skip printing the sun and make one large sized one yourself.
