I can’t believe Eid is tomorrow! With all the enthusiasm that I throw into Ramadan preparation, I always seem to fall short when it comes to Eid. But this year, I wanted to create Eid favors for my kids’ classmates. I’ve been trying to be more conscious of the amount of plastic I use, and my school still does not allow food (aka treats) to be brought in for kids, so I came up with this curated gift. The favor is an Eidi envelope filled with stickers, firework glasses, and a donation made on behalf of the classroom.
What I purchased:
- Gold money envelope
- Fireworks diffraction glasses (creates rainbows when kids look at light sources)
- Star stickers
If I had more time, I would have purchased Eid stickers or tattoos in advance. Maybe next year! Since I was gifting 3 classrooms (75 cards), I decided to go with cheaper generic envelopes, instead of custom Eidi envelopes.
Eid is a special holiday for our family to show kindness to friends and family. A donation (sadaqah) was made on behalf of Mrs. Branta’s 2nd-grade class to Seva Foundation.
Seva works in 22 countries, including the U.S., to prevent blindness and restore eyesight. Seva helps people have better lives by restoring sight. https://www.seva.org/
Warm Wishes, Kian and family
I hope this favor allows the kindergarteners and second graders to experience the thrill of getting an Eidi Envelope, and also the happiness of giving sadaqah during Ramadan and Eid.
Peace, Salam, and Eid Mubarak!
