This is a lovely unique idea Great for Eid gifts!
“Alijawad is raising money for the Gaza Relief Fund launched by the World federation. He is doing this by selling double sided, laminated, A3 placemats. One side has table manners and the other side has the Arabic Alphabet. They make great Eid presents. They are for £4 each or £7 for 2 placemats.”
This is a classic that has been running for many years now in children’s classes. On the last week before Eid, the children bring in unwanted presents from their homes and these are all collected and priced (between £1 and 5).
Then the children bring in money and buy presents for their families! The presents are wrapped so that mums and dads don’t know what they have chosen 🙂
That children get to choose their own gifts for others is a great way to get them to think for thenselves about what their family members would like – and their choices are often spot on! (Alhamd :))
And of course, all proceeds go to charity 🙂
