I think things are going to slow down a bit after this one. I want to prevent a burnout, lol masha Allah. I will be getting the things done in the house to make it run a little more smoothly for the Blessed Month of Ramadan, insha Allah.
I just get so excited when we do something around the house that I just want to share with you all, masha Allah
We made our Recipe box out of an old snack box,( we try using all our resources around here) This one was quite simple and my older girls were able to do this one without any assistance
This is the box before it was decorated
The inside of the box to show you it is a plain ordinary snack box. Recycling and reusing,masha Allah.
We just cut the top of the box to the size we wanted and used the remaining part of the box to make the lid.
Second Stage of our recipe box, The girls used some colored foil for this part. I had some just laying around the house from when I used to make homemade candy.
They even foiled the inside of the box, I guess they really wanted to make it look like it was never a snack box, masha Allah
They girls really got into this craft, they have been learning to cook and I have also been teaching them how to create their own things on the computer.
I found graphics that I just fell in love with and I was wondering how I could use them. Then I came up with the idea for the girls to make a Ramadan Recipe Box, masha Allah. This was how I was going to use them. So I showed the girls the graphics and opened up the computer program that they were going to use and this is how they incorporated the graphics.
They even made the Recipe cards that they are planning to fill out with recipes we are going to use for the month insha Allah.
The girls really worked well as a team on this one. I normally have issues with getting them to work nicely with one another. My thought is that they got so involved in this project that they didn’t even realize they were getting along! *smile*
Not too shabby for an old snack box that was saved from the trash! Masha Allah.
I want to share the link with you where I found the graphics. There are some extremely talented sisters on the forum. Do go and visit and register and see the creations they have come up with insha Allah.
