Eid is an important time of year for Muslims all around the world, a time to reflect, celebrate and be thankful for what’s around us. So when a good friend asked me if I would create an Eid Alphabet, one that she could print off for her children I couldn’t wait to get started.
Armed with tips of what makes a great Eid Craft project, I got started. I wanted to create a feeling of atmosphere with the alphabet and I really hope I have achieved that and done it justice. If you have a Cricut also check out my Eid Star SVG and my SVG Eid Alphabet will be live very soon.
This is also a perfect alphabet for teachers and cub and scout groups to print and and start the conversation to draw children from all faith communities into to conversation and celebrations.

10 Fact About Eid For Kids
A huge thank you to my wonderful friend Naseema from Saabun Soap for providing me with the top Eid facts for children. Also do check her out, her Indian inspired soap, it is just gorgeous.
- Muslims celebrate Eid al-Fitr at the end of the Islamic month of Ramadan. The name Eid al-Fitr comes from the Arabic ??d al-fi?r, which means “festival of the breaking of the fast.”
- During Ramadan the fast is broken twice a day, with a meal eaten before dawn known as Suhoor and another meal is eaten after sunset called Iftar. As the time of dawn and sunset changes each day so does the time the fast can be broken.
- Ramadan and Eid- al Fitr are held in different Gregorian dates every year. Muslims have an Islamic calendar which is based on lunar cycles. A new month starts and ends with each new moon. Thus, every year, the month of Ramadan falls around 10 days earlier than it was the previous year in relation to the Gregorian calendar.
- Muslims celebrate two Eid’s in the year. One is celebrated after the Islamic month of Ramadan the other is celebrated in the Islamic month of Dhul Hijjah following the pilgrimage.
- Not everyone celebrates Eid on the same day due to sighting of the moon and geographical location. Muslims look towards the closest Muslim country for guidance on the sighting of the moon.
- We start the day by wearing our best (new) clothes, praying together and giving charity. Women traditionally apply henna to their hands and men wear traditional thobes.
- We then get together with our families and friends, exchanging gifts and tucking in to some traditional eats and treats!
- Traditionally the foods we eat on Eid is biryani, and seviyan (vermicelli pudding). Recently, this has changed to a whole host of dishes being added to the table. We enjoy eating and feeding others!
- Some houses like to decorate for Ramadan and Eid. This is to remember that it is a time of celebration and happiness.
- During the Eid celebration, Muslims greet each other by saying ‘Eid Mubarak’, which is Arabic for “Blessed Eid”.
