An Eid Mubarak banner

~*~ Assalaamu alaykum! ~*~

This banner was from our last eid.
It was made from coloured card. Some were cut
into triangles and some into circles. The letters were written
on the circles by hand, then glued to the triangles.
The triangles were then stapled to a paper ribbon, the type
you use to wrap presents with.

Here's a close up of one of the triangles for a better view.

We also stuck tiny sticker stars on the wall around the banner.

Hope you like it!

Cereal box Car

Sorry for the delay, but alhamdulillah we are back!

We made a car for our dolls out of two small cereal boxes.
We glued them together, painted them, then the back box was cut enough so
a doll could fit inside and we left space for the boot. For the front part
of the car we left enough space for the bonnet and cut 3 sides
of the top of the box then flipped the piece upright so it
would be able to represent the window. We then cut out a middle
section of the flap and attached a piece of plastic for the glass.
If you look at the pics, you'll understand better. We took some pics
as we were making it up but they weren't very clear.

Hope you enjoy the car, it's actually really cool mashaAllah!

We made the tyres out of cardboard.

Checking out the boot.

The steering wheel is also cardboard.

Vroom, vroooooooom!!!!!
