Mawlid al-Nabi can be celebrated in a way that is inclusive, focusing on themes like kindness, compassion, and respect, which are universal values emphasized in Islam.

Here are some ideas for celebrating Mawlid al-Nabi in early years settings:

Create a kindness chain: Invite children to write or draw acts of kindness on strips of paper and link them together to form a chain. Display the chain in the setting as a reminder of the importance of kindness and compassion.

Organize a charity activity: Involve children in a charity activity, such as collecting non-perishable food items for a local food bank or donating toys and clothes to a local shelter. This helps teach children the importance of giving and caring for others.

Teach about Islamic art and culture: Introduce children to the beauty of Islamic art and culture, such as geometric patterns and Arabic calligraphy. Encourage them to create their own artwork inspired by Islamic designs.

By celebrating Mawlid al-Nabi in early years settings, educators can foster a sense of respect, understanding, and appreciation for the Islamic faith and its teachings. Focusing on universal themes like kindness, compassion, and respect helps create an inclusive environment that supports the social and emotional development of young children
