Eid Puzzles

 

eidcard6

The Ending of Ramadan has approached us and Eid Has arrived. This is such a bittersweet time isn’t it?

We have colmpleted everything we had  planned on making for our Eid Gifts for one another. Throughout the entire  Month of Ramadan we have written nice little notes to one another each day and placed it in our Big mailbox. We plan on opening it on the day of Eid, which insha Allah will be tomorrow. I have also made homemade puzzles,friendship bracelets,coloring pages and I have added some Islamic books and coloring books to our mailbox for all of the kids. One thing I particularly like are the puzzles  I have made. I committed myself to making them for the little kids to keep them pre-occupied when we have guests over or when we are at someone elses house visiting for the Eid, or even for the Eid prayer if they are restless while we are all greeting one another. I have made a few extras to give out to other sisters for their younger ones. We have also made some note holders out of popsicle sticks for a couple  people…*smile*

The graphics for the puzzles I used are from my favorite graphic site now masha Allah:

book A Little journal notebook I made for DD3 who really enjoyed it. I just used some cardboard and glued some felt on top and tied the book with lanyard (plastic string) and added some felt letters to the cover. I made this for those times we are in the car or visiting  someone, she can still practice writing since she loves writing now, masha Allah

Here is the pen

note holder

Here is one of the two note holders they made . The ones they gave these two were more appreciative than they had expected them to be *smile*

The other note holder, has a post it note pad in it.

These note holders were made from popsicle sticks! The kids saved all summer long. They decorated them with paint (orange one) and marker  (pink one) 

They all like the rugged look of the finished product so they didn’t want to embelish it too much. A good Eid gift to give though for those who need to make themselves notes regularly like me* If I don’t write myself reminders I will not remember!

Here is the site where I found the note holder:Note Holder Craft

Insha Allah you all enjoy your Eid and remain steadfast with your Worship to the Most High.
