Eid is the time when Muslims from all over the world and of all age groups unite to celebrate in the most spiritual and joyous manner possible.
Eid days are always memorable for everyone, especially children, who look forward to this day the most and always reminisce on the memories they create. This year, Eid is going to be celebrated differently compared to any other year, as we are all going spend it at home due to the pandemic. However, let’s not forget to celebrate the day, and still try to make the most of it. Bring the spark of Eid to your home by making crafts; it’s an activity anyone can participate in, even children. Making Eid banners could be a good start. In order to make an Eid banner, you will need the following:
● Coloured craft papers
● Craft glue
● Black marker pen
Print and cut out the template patterns. Select different fun coloured craft papers for this craft, and trace the template patterns on the selected craft papers. Use scissors to cut out the traced patterns nicely.
Select one label pattern for each letter of the banner. I’ve crafted a banner with the text “Eid Mubarak”, so I used 3 labels for the word EID and 7 labels for the word MUBARAK. Use a pencil to write the letters on each of the selected labels.
Now, use a black marker (or any other coloured marker as you wish) to trace the letters written with pencil.
For this step you can either use rope, yarn, or any kind of string. Or, you can simply use a strip of paper. I’m using 2 strips cut out from thick paper. Glue the letters for ‘EID’ on any one of the strips.
Glue the letters for the word MUBARAK on the other strip.
I’ve also added 2 labels on both sides of the word EID and added some glittery stars and a crescent moon on them.
You can decorate the banners however you like. Get crafty and give it a festive look!
