Amman, October, 2013: The Children’s Museum Jordan, a non-profit educational initiative of Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah, celebrated Eid Al Adha as part of its "Celebrations" Program, held in partnership with Bank al Etihad.

Children also enjoyed making their own sheep and kites and participated in many fun activities in the Exhibit Hall and the Outdoor Area.
