Rainbow Fish

We hope you had a nice Eid.
Here's an easy project to do with paper.
First I cut out the shape of a fish like below.
Then I cut out strips of different coloured paper. You have to make sure
all the strips of paper cover the shape of the fish completely.
Then paste them onto the back of the paper.
When you turn the paper over you can see how nice it looks.
I then drew on some bubbles.

 Hope you like it.
Here are a couple of other paper drawings my sisters did.

Shortbread Biscuits

Assalaamu alaykum

Today I'd like to show you how to make Shortbread Biscuits.
These are very nice to have with a cup of tea.
Perhaps you could make them for Iftar inshaAllah.

110g buttter (at room temperature)
50g caster sugar
175g plain flour (sifted)

Preheat your oven to Gas Mark 2, 300F, 150C.

Put all the ingredients into a bowl and rub together until
a breadcrumb like mixture is left.

 Squeeze the mixture together to form a big ball of dough like below.

Sprinkle caster sugar on to your work surface,
then roll out your dough over it.

Cut out circle using a fluted cutter or you could
use any shaped cutter if you prefer.

 Lay out the biscuits on a baking sheet, prick each
biscuit with a fork. Bake on a highish shelf in the oven
for 30 mins.

Cool the biscuits on a wire rack, dust them with caster sugar
and store in an airtight tin, to keep them crisp. 

Serve with tea and enjoy!

Our trip to Sanday, Orkney Islands

We would like to share with you photographs from our recent holiday
to Sanday, Orkney. Orkney is a group of islands located north of Scotland.
You can learn more about the islands from the following link:

Our Grandmother has a summer house in Sanday and we stayed with her for two weeks.We went for daily walks, it was cold and windy but we found it refreshing and lots of fun.

View from the ferry ride we took from the mainland, Kirkwall to Sanday.

Another view showing some of the town.

Sanday, Orkney
Field of buttercups with lake in the background.

Lots of cows and lovely stone walls.

While taking a walk we were joined by a lovely stray cat.
We named her Tabby.

At the coast sometimes you can see mother seals with their pups. We saw one but it's not clear in the photograph.

Very pretty scenery subhanAllah.

Orkney doesn't have many trees because of the strong winds.
But the island is still very lovely.

We saw swans with their young on the lake!

Cute rabbits hopping across the paths.

We hope you enjoyed the pics!

Boat Container for Stationary

Assalaamu alaykum

Here's a nice stationary container made into a boat. 
I made it using card, paper and toilet roll tubes.

Materials you will need:
3 toilet roll tubes
2 different coloured acrylic paint
Silver paper
Blue paper
White paper
Empty cereal box



Firstly, you need to make the shape of your boat. See the way I scored the lines
on the cereal box below. Once you have done that, cut it out carefully.

This is what it should look like.

Cut out two strips of white paper.

Flip the shape over and glue the strips to the ends like so.

Cut out the inside shape out of blue paper and glue it to the box like I
have shown  below.


Join both sides of the box exactly, then staple them together.
You can see the boat formed now.

Then paint the tubes of toilet rolls in the colours you prefer,
I used yellow and red and pasted silver paper around the third one.
Glue them together.

Glue and place the three tubes into the boat.
I cut out circles from the white paper for porthole windows.

Once made, start storing your stationary in it!!

Will make a nice handmade gift aswell!
