Single Muslim Father. First Ramadan without wife to help make food in the morning or with 'fun' ideas for the kidlets. Help!

After 13 years of marriage, I find myself in the position of being single and having sole custody of my three children, and facing my first Ramadan.
We always had some traditions - decorations, etc. that we'd do. Now, half a year after the separation, and Ramadan is upon us.
I have no idea what to do to make Ramadan fun - honestly, after 13 years alone, I'm not sure how I'm going to get through this. What traditions can I start? What can I make for breakfasts for my kids (all under 11) that will fill them up, but not grind the morning to a halt?
