Place your sticks next to each other so that you can put three pieces of painter’s blue tape across them. It was a little hard to get them to stay straight while we taped, so we used the paintbrush as a leveler to help.
Flip your sticks over and use your pencil to draw a design. Here, I drew out the word Eid in Arabic for my daughter to trace. Try to make your design reach across all eight sticks.
Trace out the word in the blue paint.
You’ll need the newspaper for this second part! We used it under the yellow because it got very messy. Once you paint all the way across your design, let it all dry. After a little while, place three more pieces of tape across the sticks again and flip over.
Take the tape off the back and trace out your second design. Here I wrote the word Mubarak for my daughter to trace.
Again, paint around your design with the yellow paint. Allow to dry.
Once you are ready, take off the tape from the second side and place your puzzle card in an envelope.
When they open their envelope, this is what they’ll get.
