99 Names Allah

I created this 99 names of Allah word search puzzle for my children during the last 10 days of Ramadan in observance of Laylat Al Qadr (Arabic: لیلة القدر‎).

This special night, also called the Night of Power, is thought of as the night when the Quran was first sent down from Heaven and occurs on one of the odd-numbered nights of the last ten days of Ramadan.

One of the ways to receive the benefits of this night is to perform a remembrance of Allah through dhikr (Arabic: ذِكْر‎,), Islamic devotional acts, in which phrases or prayers are repeated. Sometimes the content of the prayers includes the names of Allah, of which there are 99. These are known as ʾasmāʾu llāhi l-ḥusnā (Arabic: أسماء الله الحسنى‎, Beautiful Names of Allah).

While there is no universal agreement among Muslims as to what exactly counts as a name of God, and what does not, I created this list that was a little more child friendly and had words that they might be familiar with already from reading their Quran.

Eid Treat Mini Bags {Tutorial}

Eid treat bag

Due to COVID19, I made only a few Eid treat bags for our neighborhood kids, instead of the hundreds I used to volunteer to make for our community holiday party.

I decided to spend a little time creating them and cut out each letter, then back it with tissue paper, to make it look like stained glass.

I added a little note inside the treat bags for the moms that they could put a tea light into the bag, once all the treats were gone, and use it as a decorative light. LED lights are best inside a paper bag, but any type of light or flame should never be left unattended around children.

My eldest daughter helped me cut out the letters and rated this craft as easy, once she got the hang of cutting.

Supplies

  • Treat bag
  • Letter stickers
  • Xacto
  • Tape
  • Tissue paper
  • Newspaper or mini cutting board

To start, my daughter took the letter D and adding pencil markings to the top and bottom to remind herself not to cut through. If she did not add these markings, then the middle of the D would fall out.

Then my daughter added a few layers of newspaper inside the bag, laid it flat and cut out the letters.

Now my daughter needed to figure out what size tissue paper to cut out to cover up all the letters. Once the tissue paper was cut down, she used tape to secure it in place, inside the bag.

Now our Eid treat bag was done and is ready to be filled with candy or non-candy treats. This photo also helps explain better how the middle of the D stays attached to the bag.

We played around with the placement of the letters, having some bags read from side to side, while others went from top to bottom.

S’more Crescent Moon Dip {Recipe}

eid kid treat recipe

Our family was introduced to s’mores dip at a girl scout event and plan to add a crescent moon shape to the top, to include it in our Eid AlFitar home party.

Eid AlFitar (Arabic: عيد الفطر‎), is the holiday that marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan. When it begins is determined on a lunar calendar. Part of the festive celebrations is baking treats and sharing them with loved ones.

Due to COVID19, this holiday will be harder without friends and family around, so we have decided to spend less time making elaborate desserts, with elaborate fillings that only the two grownups in the home would have to finish alone. We will be spending more time making kid friendly treats, by having the kids decide on the foods they want to eat.

The word s’more is a shortened version of the words “some more” and is a sandwich treat that consists of a melted marshmallow added to a layer of chocolate placed between two pieces of graham crackers. The first known s’mores recipe was published in a Girl Scout guidebook from 1927.

S’mores marshmallows are traditionally melted using a campfire, but we made our dip in the oven by gathering a few supplies in our kitchen.

Supplies

  • Chocolate chips
  • Marshmallows (we get halal ones from Trader Joes, check your local organic grocery store for non-animal ingredients)
  • Pie pan
  • Toothpicks
  • Yellow & purple sprinkles
  • Butter
  • Graham crackers
  • Paper towel
  • Wax paper

Place one marshmallow on a toothpick and fully submerge it in water.

Wipe most of the water off on the paper towel, then roll the marshmallow in the sprinkles.

Let the marshmallows sit on the wax paper for about have an hour, then use kitchen scissors to cut them in half. If your scissors get gooey from cutting, rub a little butter on them in between. Clean the scissors off between the different colors.

We made 10 purple marshmallows then started work on the yellow ones.

Once we had colored all our marshmallows, we needed to get stared on prepping the pie pan. We mixed half a cup of melted butter with 12 crushed crackers and layering that on the bottom. Next we added a layer of chocolate chips.

Finally we arranged the cut up marshmallows on top in the shape of a crescent moon.

We placed our plate in the oven at 450 F for 7 minutes. This not only melts the chocolate into the crackers but it also melts the marshmallows into each other. Use whole graham crackers to dip into the result. It is best to eat it while it is still a warm and gooey mess.
