Eid Baked Rocks {Tutorial}

Day 24 of our Ramadan crafts challenge using the oven to bake rocks.

 

A few years ago we made an Eid Mubakak set to decorate  our flower garden.  This year we decided to update our rock collection with new art.

 

Eid Al Fitr is the holiday the commemorates the end of Ramadan and will be here in less then two weeks.

 

Supplies

Rocks
Crayons
Aluminum foil
Sharpie marker

 

We started by collecting rocks from under our porch. We washed them in the sink with soap and water and laid them out on aluminum foil.  I baked them in the over for 15 minuets at 350 degrees. While they were baking, the girls peeled some of the crayons paper off so the wax would melt directly on the rocks.

 

When they came out, the girls touched the crayon on the rocks and watched it melt.

Set the rocks someplace that they can cool down. If you would like to bake more rocks, make sure you use a new piece of foil.

Use the sharpie to write out the letters EID MUBARAK which means BLESSED EID in Arabic.

If you would like to place your rocks outside in the garden, make sure they are protected with a few coats of Mod Podge. Or you can just place it on your dinning room table!
