Get your cookie cutters ready! It’s the night before Eid, and your children are probably stirring excitedly in the house, waiting for the fun to begin. What’s a tasty activity to put that energy and excitement to good use? Eid baking! Preparing sweets before Eid is a great way to get kids excited about their holiday, and also a way for them to bid farewell to the month of Ramadan– although the strong, wafting smell of cookies may not help much when you’re fasting!
Kids will love molding and decorating cookies and cupcakes– especially those with an Eid or Ramadan theme. You can bake last minute or start days in advance to begin the Ramadan countdown.
Your little artists can help you create gorgeous arrangements.
The finished products can be used as deserts, snacks, or gifts and if you decide to do the latter do not forget to boast about it by taking pictures and posting them on Instagram with #GiveEid
Happy baking and Eid MubaraK!
