Recycled Minaret Money Favor {Tutorial}

Eid Al Fitr has been announced for tomorrow and to celebrate we made these minaret money favors out of recycled cardboard rolls to give out to kids at our community picnic.

We painted a cardboard roll to look like a minaret, a tower that is part of mosque architecture from where the Islamic call to prayer is sent out.

After we painted it, we added rolled up money inside. Once a person gets the money favor, they tug on the Eid Mubrarak (Blessed Eid in Arabic) greeting that has been placed on the money to pull it out.

Follow these simple steps to make your own.

Supplies

  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Tape
  • Eid Mubarak printed and cut out
  • Scissors
  • Cardboard roll
  • Xacto

My daughter started making the money favors by cutting off one end of the cardboard roll to give the top of the minaret a dome.

The next step is to paint, first the lower part of the minaret.

Next my daughter painted the dome a different bright color.

The final painting step is to add the door and windows.

While my daughter waited for the windows and door to dry, she added a little piece of tape to the Eid Mubarak greeting to attach it to the money.

The final step is to add a slit with the Xacto on the side of the minaret for the money to come out.

We made quite a few, changing out the colors of the minaret to make them fun and bright.

Arab Women Cartoon Book {Tutorial}

We spent the day Eid baking and needed the young ones out of the way. My oldest taught them how to make cartoon books with Arab women wearing traditional outfits.

Eid Al Fitr is the holiday at the end of Ramadan and is spent at social gatherings with friends and family.

Traditionally we have spent the weekend before Eid baking cookies at a friend’s home and this year was no exception.

While all the women were in the kitchen, my teen helped watch the young ones. She took a book of Arab women in traditional clothes and they spent the afternoon making cartoon books. She first drew them sample templates that they could trace or draw their own characters all together.

The only supplies this activity needs is pen, paper and coloring markers. The first step is to stack two sheets of paper on top of each other and fold them into three equal parts across the wide part of the papers.

Then my teen drew a Moroccan woman in traditional clothes holding a tagine in the middle section.

The next step is to cut across the narrow part of the paper on either side of the drawn character in two equal sections. Make sure to do this for both pieces of paper, both times not cutting the middle section.

Using the first woman as a guide, my daughter drew out the middle section of a different Arab woman from one of her sample templates.

Once my daughter had drawn four women on either side of the middle drawing, she colored them all in.

Now there are five different traditional outfits to choose from to create new funny characters.
