Henna Hands Greeting Cards

For some Muslim cultures, henna, or mehndi, is a big part of Eid celebrations. The night before Eid women and children get intricate henna designs on their hands so on Eid day their hands are stained with a fresh, dark espresso colour. If you’ve got a little one, make these henna hand greeting cards to engage her (or him!) in this age old Eid tradition with a North American twist. They’re great for handing out to family, friends or teachers – and for added fun, consider combining the cards with candy or treats.

Materials

  • Cardstock, various colours
  • Dark brown stamping pad
  • Floral vine or arabesque stamps
  • Alphabet stamps
