Eid Silhouette Picture

This is a simple technique for children to master but the resultant Eid silhouette picture is beautiful. Use for a special Eid card, or put your picture on display.

Eid silhouette picture
Here's our finished Eid silhouette.

You will need:

2 primary colours of paint (we have used blue and yellow, but red and yellow would look good too)
Card
Black marker pen

Instructions:

Using your darkest colour (blue for us) paint the bottom half of the card.

Mix a small amount of the second paint colour into the first and paint a bit further up the card. Repeat and keep going until the card is covered.

Eid silhouette background

Leave to dry.

With your marker pen, draw an outline of a skyline with mosques (masjids). Colour under the line black.

To finish, add a crescent moon and star.

This technique would make a lovely Eid card, or you could frame your picture for display each year.
