Eid-ul-Fitr is almost here, and if you’re like me, it’s probably biryani that comes to mind first! However, Eid is more than that – it’s a festival that marks the end of Ramadan, a month of fasting and prayer. 

During Ramadan, Muslims across the world fast from dawn to dusk and spend the nights in prayer. It’s probably due to this that lanterns and lights are a major feature during this month and in Islamic art and architecture. While most mosques are shut now, people have retreated to their homes for prayer. Many people decorate their homes with lanterns, fairy lights, and candles to mark the special nights of prayer, and the overall look is heavenly!

So we thought it’s only fitting to celebrate the end of the month of fasting and prayer with a simple yet elegant  DIY Easy Eid Mubarak Card for kids. This card is super easy to make and requires only colored paper and card stock. So even if you’re under lockdown and don’t have access to craft supplies, you can make this with whatever you have at home. A perfect last-minute Eid card idea!

Why are lanterns important in Ramadan?

For Muslims, there is a special tradition that involves beautiful lanterns that are set aglow with candles or oils, creating beautiful patterns of light and color through the night. If you travel to the Middle East during Ramadan, you will find these lanterns hanging in bazaars, in front of homes, restaurants, and hotels.
