Eid decorations make our holidays feel festive. Eid ul Fitr and Eid ul Adha are out two main festivals. One comes after Ramadan and the other at the end of Hajj.
If you recieved a lot of Muslim holiday greeting cards from friends and family, you may want to display them. Hanging them on a ribbon works well, either vertically or horizontally as a banner. Displaying your cards on a corkboard works well too.
We wear our beautiful clothes for Eid.
For Eid Al-Fitir, you can use the various Fanoos lanterns that the kids made to make a mobile. If you disply it in your entryway, living room, or dining room all your 'Id guests will be able to see it.
Ask your kids to do some beautiful calligraphy for you. Type up some short Ayat from the Quran at the top of some blank pages. They can use that as an example to copy, or as a reference to make a fancy calligraphy piece to display. Ask them to make it as beautiful as they can since Quran is Allah's words.
Enjoy the festivities.
Design a prayer rug. Everyone in the family can participte in this craft. A large collection of crayons or colored pencil helps.
Design the perfect prayer rug for yourself. Any design or colors you like as long as you think it would motivate you to do Salat more often.
To take it further, go ahead and figure out how you will make the rug you designed. Choose your materials and get to work. Maybe quilt it, latch-hook, embroidery, fabric paint, or some other way you'd like to do.
Eid Al-Adha is near the end of Hajj. The kids could make a model of the Kaba to display in your home. Maybe have them do a calligraphy contest, the winner gets to do the calligraphy on the model Kaba.
A class could put together a poster showing various ways people travel to Mecca for Hajj. They could either draw or collage using photos from magazines. Little ones may have more fun making paper airplanes or planes out of paper plates and paper towel tubes.
