Easy Ramadan Craft For Kids: Fingerpaint Dates

I recently had an appearance at Southern California Children’s Museum, a magical space in Pasadena. After my author presentation and book reading of Moon’s Ramadan, the kids (ranging from ages 2-10) were invited to do this easy fingerprint dates craft.


  • Non-Toxic Finger Paints (red, blue, and yellow)
  • Paint Mixing Bowl
  • Paint Mixing Utensil
  • Crayons or colored pencils
  • Paper Towels (just in case)
  • Free Printable of the date bowl illustration (2 per page). The download link is below!

  • Print out the free printable (download link above)
  • Color the date bowl
  • Use fingerprints and thumbprints to make the dates
  • Let the paint dry
  • (Optional) Write a special Ramadan and/or Eid message above the bowl

I had leftover pastel shades of pink, blue, and yellow. So my brown turned out a bit dull. But when you use primary red, yellow, and brown. The color is more rich and looks more similar to dates.

Peace & Salam,
