Eid Star Decorative Box {Tutorial}

I decorated these Eid star boxes for my daughters to find after they solve the clues in yesterday’s treasure hunt. They will have treats and cash in them.

Eid Al Fitar, is a holiday that commemorates the end of the holy month of Ramadan. It will be observed by Muslims around the world this Sunday.

I love using this color shift paint as it makes the boxes have an extra look of shimmer. I received a few of these products for my role as Plaid Ambassador.

Supplies

  • Paintbrush
  • Wood letters
  • Star decorative boxes
  • Awl
  • Glue
  • Colorshift paint
  • Vintage white paint
  • Brads (3)
  • Flowers (6)

I painted the stars with the vintage white to give it a base coat, then added two coats of the color shift paint. I did the same thing to the letters.

Once the paint had dried, I punched a whole in the middle of the star with the awl.

I added the brad to the middle of two flowers, then put the brad through the flower hole I just created. I closed the brad on the inside of the flower to hold it in place.

The final step is to glue down the wood letter to the top of the flower.

Actually, I thought it was the final step, but once the letter was on, I realized I didn’t like how it blended too well with the background and added glitterific paint.

I followed the same steps for the other letters to spell out the word EID.

Eid Treasure Hunt {Printable}

To wrap up Ramadan, I created a children Eid treasure hunt to solve clues. It is similar to one we enjoyed previously, before my kids received their Eid gifts.

Eid Al Fitar, is a holiday that commemorates the end of the holy month of Ramadan. It will be observed by Muslims around the world this Sunday. Eid Mubarak is a greeting shared by Muslims that means Blessed Holiday.

When we tried an Eid treasure hunt a few years ago, I hand wrote the clues. I then left them around our home. This time, I decided to type them out.

Simply print out the clues that I’ve conveniently placed on one sheet, cut out the squares and tape them in place.

I have added two SORRY boxes. These can be used if you have say, two locations where you keep markers (clue #7). I also included an award EID MUBARAK to place on the laundry room door, or closet door, or wherever you keep your stinky clothes (clue #9), after the final clue.

Eid treasure hunt answer key

CLUE 1: You will realize that with every clue you will feel like a winner, so look under where you have your suhoor DINNER

CLUE 2: Is all this work making your tired? Do you need to rest your head? Since you’re here, how about a peek under your BED

CLUE 3: One hand is longer than its other, but there is no need to call a doc, just look around the living room CLOCK

CLUE 4: Some clues are very easy, don’t you think? Like this one that simply asks you to look under the kitchen SINK

CLUE 5: Are you having fun? Do you feel like you can do more? Okay. But first answer that knock on the front DOOR

CLUE 6: This next clue will not take up your entire iftar, just look at where your parents park their CAR

CLUE 7: It’s a good thing this treasure hunt hasn’t driven you bonkers, you will need all your brain cells to find this clue around the crayons and MARKERS

CLUE 8: As we clean up and get ready for Eid with a good scrub, maybe you should peek around the bathTUB

CLUE 9: Sorry but you’ve got to plug your nose, because the Eid gifts are in the room with the dirty CLOTHES

Eid Beaded Keychain {Tutorial}

We made these Eid Mubarak beaded letter keychains to give out to a few volunteers at our local mosque. They have been providing free iftar meals to anyone in the community.

Eid Mubrak is a common greeting Muslims say to each other during the holiday season, that means Blessed Festival, in Arabic it is written as عيد مبارك‎.

Eid AlFirtar, the holiday that commemorates the end of the holy month of Ramadan, is due to occur this Saturday.

Supplies

  • Alphabet letters
  • Cord
  • Black beads (4)
  • Keychain ring

We started by securing our cord around the keychain ring. You can do this by folding the cord in half, then looping it into the ring, bringing the open ends through the cord loop.

Before adding the letter beads, you will want to add the black beads. For the first word, tie off the cord about half way down the middle of it. For the longer second word, tie off the cord at the ring. Add a black ring to each cord, then the corresponding letters. Include the final two black beads and tie off the cord again.

That was such an easy craft that we made several. If you enjoyed making this beaded activity, check out these others we have made:
