Ramadan sweets are wonderful, they really make our holidays feel festive. Here are some ideas for crafts using candy or other sweets.
I remember it was Eid Ul-Fitir when I came to Iraq, the airport in Istanbul was decorated with images of candy. Most of them said "Eid Mubarak" in large letters. There was even an article about Eid sweets in the airplane magazine.
A Ramadan calender is easy to make. Make a calender grid and decorate the month title. Try writing "Ramadan" with glue and then coating it with glitter or maybe just using a metallic gold or silver pen.
For each day, write the number in the box and attach a chocolate or candy. You could also write an Islamic fact or Quran verse to be hidden by the candy. Then, each evening during Ramadan your child can have the candy for that day and read what is behind the candy.
Easy to make & easy for the kids to put away.
Candy garlands are also easy to make. Just string individually wrapped candies onto thread or staple the wrapper ends together. When Eid comes just pull off a few pieces for each child. You can leave it up until the pieces are all gone.

Another crafty idea for Moms, make a Sweets recipe scrapbook. A special scrapbook/cookbook of your favorite sweets recipes, each recipe gets one to two pages. Make it as a keep-sake to hand down to your daughter, granddaughter, or niece.
Include a photo of the finished recipe, ingredient list, instructions, and some special memories you have of it. Make sure the pages are covered or laminated so your hard work isn't ruined during use.
Maybe ask your kids to make some dishes for your Ramadan sweets. Home-bakeable clay like Sculpy works great. I don't remember if it is food-safe, so best use for the wrapped candies.
Another idea is see if there is a pottery shop in your area. One that will let the kids decorate some pre-made bowls with food-safe pottery glaze. Some shops may even let the kids make their own bowls to decorate on another visit.
