Eid Adha Game

Make a pass the parcel game for Eid Adha using the Prophet Ibrahim Quranic Facts worksheet. Rewrite the facts as questions to help children recall their learnings. Tape each question under each layer of wrapping, using an Eid nasheed or the Story of Ibrahim song while the parcel is being passed around the circle. If short on preparation time/to save paper, the questions can be put into a pot to be picked at each turn instead of unwrapping the present each time.
