Art of the Ancient Egypt

This week the preschoolers and I have visited Africa… and Egypt!

We have looked at pyramids and some real Egyptian artifacts from SAM museum! Then we made our sarcophagus collage with colored papers and gems (as you can imagine they all loved the gems!). I also brought my hieroglyph stamps and some self-hardening clay and we made beautiful plaques with them (and again, some gems!).

And what lesson about Egypt would be complete without mummies? Since these kids are 3-5 years old, I decided to do something age-appropriate… we got a lot of plush toys and a lot of toilet paper and wrapped them all up! We had dog mummies, bear mummies, baby mummies, pink unicorn mummies… it was pretty spooky – and the biggest hit of the day!
