Day 17 of our Ramadan crafts we had an afternoon of fun painting with crayons and watercolor.
My youngest daughter and I made Eid cards using the same method we tried last year with the Eid Banner, but this time used a white crayon. We also tried a similar method with sugar with these peace cards.
We tried our first card with shape templates, then tried some free form shapes and words.
Eid al Fitr is the holiday that ends the month of Ramadan and is less then two weeks away.
Moon and star wood shapes
We traced out the shapes with the crayon and colored them in.
We painted over the shapes and watched the paint slide off the crayon.
I took a paper towel and lightly picked up the extra paint that was sitting on top of the crayon. Once the card completely dried, it curled up, so I placed it under a few heavy books overnight.
I made a card myself that had the words Eid Mubarak, Arabic for Blessed Eid.
My oldest daughter tried her hand at a Ramadan lantern.
If you are wondering why we are drawing the images on the left side of the cards, it’s because Arabic cards open left to right!
