One more Ramadan update

Assalamu alaykum,

finally my internet connection is up and running again. It took 6 days for my ISP to understand the cause of the problem. I am glad I am back online.
Kids and I have been really busy these last week.
I feel we have achieved so much and I am happy we could enjoy this blessed Month at home doing things that we enjoy. Hamdulillah kids will be back at their evening madrassa next month and to all their other sport activities too.
So without further do, here are some pics of our last week.

Assalaamu alaikum wa Rahmatullah,

Masha'Allah cool idea with the crayons - I can't wait to get enough crayons to try that. Would it make rainbow crayons if you put different colours together or would it all melt together and make sludge brown?

The moussaka looks absolutely scrumptious too!

Masha'Allah your children have been kept busy this month. :)

Wa alaykum assalam sister strangerinthisdunya,
we tried few different colours. One of them was dark blue and white to make a nice sky blue and we very succesful. We also tried bronze, silver and purple and it came out a kind of glittery brownish as you can see in the first and second pics.
Don;t know about rainbow but what i would suggest, when the colours are out the oven and cooling down you could use a stickto gently stir the liquid and leave it to dry. In this way I guess you can have a kind of rainbow.
Try iy out insh'Allah it's a fund activity and kids love to get themselves in the kitchen.

The moussaka was great, a bit too heavy after 16 hours fasting, but everybody enjoyed it, mash'Allah.

I kept the kids busy as we are not currently, formally teaching.
i find it hard to concentrate when fasting and their curriculum requires my attention for at least 2 hours.
So for now lots of art and craft and cooking too as I will post new pics soon so keep watching!

Jazak'Allahu kheir for passing by.
