I made these Kaaba inspired candy party sweet treats, over the weekend, for the kids that are taking part in our Arab Cultural Camp.
As we are go through our daily activities, we will be learning about Middle East and North African holidays, celebrated by Arabs. One I want to talk about is Eid Al Adha, coming up on August 30th. A central ritual that occurs is the pilgrimage to Mecca, in Saudi Arabia, to see the Kaaba.
Our last day of camp involves going to the art museum, so I came up with these sweet treats to take with us on the bus. They will not take up much space, I can discuss the Kaaba and the best part is that there will be nothing to throw away: the kids can refill the tube with other treasures.
The tubes I found had silver lids, so I turned them black with paint I was sent as a Plaid Ambassador. Be sure to clean the paint nozzle after each use and these stencil sprays will last a long time. What I love about them is they take up so little storage but hold so much paint.
My daughter helped spray paint the lids. We left the box outside in the sun but put a plastic tray over it to keep out bugs and dust.While the lids were drying, we filled a tube with the chocolate candy till it was 2/3rds of the way up. Then we added two gold coins, and filled the rest of the tube with more candy.
Once the lids dried, I slipped them on and the Kaab’a inspired candy treats were ready for our on the go day.
