This Eid my husband was out of town, 3 weeks total, and I was to fend for myself with three young children alone on the Eid. I survived. Someone give me a t-shirt.
Every Eid brings about a new style of Eid treat bag. Given the circumstances, I kept the bags just as I said, sweet and simple. A couple of chocolate coins (which I’ve always wanted to include), a punching balloon which was the highlight of the last Eid treat bags, a bouncy ball, and some alphabet stickers. That’s it. All packaged up in mini black bags with gold ribbon. A little nod towards the Kaa’ba.
The older kids got their chocolate wrapped million dollar bars.
The tiniest ones of the bunch got adorable mini giraffes and a punch balloon.
