Children wait for Eid Al-Fitr every year to wear new clothes, go out and play, buy new toys, and receive Eideya from their grandparents. Unfortunately Eid Al-Fitr this year is different, all recreational venues are shut down, and family gatherings are limited. It’s not easy for us or for our little ones. Definitely, we will not feel Eid’s joy while stuck at home. However, we can still celebrate Eid Al-Fitr at home during lockdown to lift up the family’s mood.
Here are some ideas to help you to celebrate Eid Al-Fitr at home:
Make your daughter a new hairstyle
Even if you do not go out, it would be nice to try a new hairstyle for your daughter and take some photos to create nice memories and lift up their moods.
Eid celebration ideas at home: Surprise your kids with nice gifts
Think of a toy your child wants, order it online before Eid, and then surprise him/her on the first day. When he unboxes the gift he’s been waiting for, he will definitely feel the excitement.
Match new pajamas with your little ones
Since we’re staying at home this Eid, we won’t buy new clothes. Instead, you can buy online new pajamas for your children and it would be fun to get a matching one and wear them on the first day of Eid.
Eid 2020 celebration ideas at home: Make Eid cards together
You can start a game where all the family members engage. Ask everyone to make an Eid card for a secret member of the family and then they can guess who made the cards for them.
Eid 2020 celebration ideas at home: Make a virtual family gathering
It will never be the same as gathering in real life. However, it can make it easier.
Eid 2020 celebration ideas at home: Bake Eid cookies together
You don’t need to be a great cook or master the recipe. It’s just a way to engage with your kids and spend some quality time. Children love cooking and they will be happy to see the outcome of what they did.
And when you run out of ideas, balloons are always a good option
Balloons by default create a fun atmosphere and all kids love to play with them. There are many ideas and games you can try. You can put some rice inside, shake them after blowing, dance together, and take some funny videos. It would also be nice to fly them outside the balcony.
