On Saturday the 26th of October Masjid At-Taqwa held their first Eid fun day for children aged 5 to 16 years. It was an opportunity for the children from the Madrassah as well as those from the local community to come together and enjoy a day filled with fun and games.
There was a range of activities which included, bouncy castles, shoot the goal, knock the coconuts, giant jenga, table tennis, face painting and much more.
The children were split in to small groups and with an adult to supervise were taken around the different activities. Activities paused for prayer and lunch break half way through, this gave children time to relax before continuing with the fun. The day ended with a game of pass the parcel for each of the groups. However before leaving for the day each child was rewarded with a goody bag to take home with them.
It was a wonderful day and a lift for the organisers to see the children enjoying themselves, playing together and just having fun! Masjid At-Taqwa looks forward to planning more such events in the future insha’Allah.
