Inside old Sidon, among small shops and vendors selling homemade sweets and "Bint al Ghazel" -- cotton candy – one sweets shop owner is trying to make children smile with a simple game using a cardboard box.Some are empty and others have chocolate, candy or small toys hidden inside.Sous DIY game, made of a rectangular cardboard box with papper and lined with 55 slots, is slightly different from the old commercial version."I paid LL250 to play but won LL1,000 worth of presents," she told The Daily Star. However, she plays again, hoping to win chocolate or candy this time. Nawal al-Baba, a 6-year-old girl, closes her eyes while tearing the slot open. She was hoping to win a toy but got a piece of chocolate instead.
