A wooden paddle doll: Your child will make a lovely hand-cut birch doll. Your child will design a face and clothing and paint them with the included acrylic paints, then hand-string bright beaded hair for the doll.
A snake-head throwing stick: This one is tons of fun - your child will design and paint a snake-shaped wooden stick and go on an Egyptian "hunt" with it.
A senet board game: This was the favorite board game in ancient Egypt. Senet boards were even found in King Tut's tomb. This game is easy to make, easy to learn, and very fun for the whole family to play.
Mummify him! Your child will actually make a mummy from an apple, an orange, and other kit components. Just like a real Egyptian, he will remove the mummy's organs (orange pulp and seeds!), wash it, cover it in sweet spices, and mummify it in natron that he made himself.
Wrap him! Your child will do a simulated linen and resin wrap.
Build a coffin to keep him in! - Your child will design and create an authentic cartonnage boxiform coffin. These are beautiful.
Paint pictures like the Egyptians did - with paint you make yourself. Your child will make "colored stones," then crush them to make his own paints for an Egyptian painting.
Memorize Bible verses and principles with our exclusive Bible Truths Cards. Your child will learn the truth from God's Word as it relates to the Egyptian culture, beliefs, and worldview.
Set up an Egytpian marketplace Your child can barter with friends or family using the enclosed bag of toys.
Do math like an Egyptian. Your child will be thrilled at how quickly he will learn to do even advanced arithmetic with Egyptian numerals. This is actually much easier than doing traditional math!
