I wanted for the boys to have something special that was theirs though out Ramadan. I had pinned this craft awhile ago and felt that it would work.
The instructions are from AlphaMom.com.
1. Sandpaper (I taped two for one pillowcase), pillowcase in light colours, design – any words needs to be in mirror image, crayons, newspaper, iron.
2. Tape two pieces of sandpaper with some tape on the smooth side. Using a printed image for guide, trace Ramadan greeting onto the sandpaper.
At this point I let Ilyaas (7) and Zakariyya (5) design their own pictures. Ibraheem (11) did his own thing.
3. Once you are happy with the design. Place some newpaper into your pillow case so that the crayon does not bleed through. Place the crayon coloured sandpaper face down onto the pillowcase and iron.
These are our designer Ramadan pillowcases.
