The boys and girls at Twinkles White Rose have been finding out about Eid al-Fitr. The Arabic name Eid al-Fitr translates to ‘Festival of the breaking of the fast’ in English and it marks the end of the month-long fast of Ramadan, and the beginning of the Islamic month of Shawwal. Eid al-Fitr is celebrated when the new moon is sighted. The children have been busy drawing, cutting and painting pictures of moons.
They have made their very own chapatis. Chapatis are a type of traditional food that is eaten on Eid. It was lots of fun mixing, kneading and rolling the chapati dough. They then ate the chapatis for dinner, they were very tasty!
They have also been very busy tracing around their hands and drawing their own Mehndi patterns. Mehndi is traditionally worn on Eid. They also had beautiful Mehndi patterns drawn on their hands, it was very tickly!
