We have three daughters, which means our house if full of their stuff. Our Ramadan craft today aims to re-use one of their items, their kitchen chore charts, into Eid decor.
By making the decor reversible, we are able to use it for tracking their daily process and also turn them around and use them for Eid at certain times of the year.
Eid is the Arabic word for festival or holiday. In the Islamic calendar, Eid Al Fitr is the holiday that follows the holy month of Ramadan and we will be celebrating it on June 15 this year. However, we would be able to use these signs also during Eid Al Adha, another Islamic holiday. Since the word is also used in birthday, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, etc, we can use these several times a year.
I received these fun paints, that shimmer and glitter, from my role as Plaid Ambassador. Be sure to stop by the Facebook contest to win Plaid products. My teen helped put this easy DIY craft tutorial together.
Paint – pink glitter, purple and red shift
My daughter painted the back of all three chalkboard signs in the red color shift paint.
She allowed them to fully dry, then added the stencil design with the purple color shift.
While that was drying, she added the glitter paint to the canvas letters.
Once both pieces had fully dried, she used the glue to stick the letters to the signs.
I wish you could see these in person, they shimmer and glitter in the light and look so pretty.
Once all three are together, they leave quite the impression.
When they are not being used for an Eid decor, they will be turned around to turn back into chore charts. Each girl has her own color of chalk and we leave them notes during the day such as “dishes” or “feed the cat” to remind them of their task.
