wasting time driving- or bonding, fun, learning time? You choose!


Asalaamu alaikum waramatulahi wabarakatu.


Yesterday little Miss “I know” and myself went to visit a friend who was traveling as well as a newly married sister/friend who moved down to Illinois from Greenbay WI. This meant we were in the car…..and a LOT of it since Mamá has NO sense of direction what-so ever! I was a bit lost! lol

Okay maybe un poco mas ( a bit more) than a bit…AlhamduliAllah.(Thank God through it all)

Anyhow, We decided to play the “Islamic Trivia” game. It might already exist out there, but in my head I made it up 😉

Basically, we are both babies in the Deen (the Islamic way of life) and since in homeschooling we are learning about the Prophets, I decided to do a review while we drove.

I asked her questions like

  • “How many god’s are there in Islam?”
  • “Which prophet built an Arc?”
  • “How many times a day are Muslims supposed to pray?”
  • “Which Prophet and his Mother were not touched by Shaitan?”
  • “Who was the First Prophet?”

Than she quizzed me with a few questions 😉

It was actually passing the time quickly, great for review and she enjoyed “playing a game” and of course saying she knew the answer 😉

All in all, tuvimos un hermoso día (we had a beautiful day), great food and two wonderful visits in between our Islāmic trivia ‘car schooling’ game 😉

What games, ideas, or things do you do to improvise with your child(ren)?

What do you do when you meet a “glitch” or a brain freeze/homeschoolers block in your homeschooling time or lack of creativity?
