We are not Tapestry of Grace users...but something that they offer with their curriculum is an "end of unit" celebration. I thought they looked like a lot of fun so we decided to host our own celebration about the end of our Ancient Egypt unit! A lot of preparations went into our celebrations and here are a few of the days of hard work leading up to our party!
We experimented with paper mache.
It was a MESS.
We decided to make some canopic jars. We used water bottles from the Dollar Tree, aluminum foil and masking tape to start the basic shape.
We then covered them with paper mache and began shaping the heads.
It took a long time...
Did I mention it was a GOOEY mess?
Once they were dry we spray painted them gold (among other treasures we created)
We also worked on making our own herbal oils.
We made them out of clay...
As well as Hieroglyphics on papayrus (ok, its actually a paper bag)
We painted a couple of cat statues.
Posters were made...
As well as history pockets!
Presentations were prepared !
(Kayley spoke about mummification and Maggie about Pharaoh and the 10 Plagues)
We sent out invitations to a few neighbors and had a great night!
I'll get some pictures up of our party soon! Thanks for stopping by!
