Ancient Egypt

Below are five suggestions. Your turn to leave a suggestion.

  1. According to, “Children’s games appear to be much less organized, most often taking on spur of the moment challenges such as balancing, racing, wrestling, and tug of wars.” Easy enough.
  2. Find a series of crafts here.
  3. Have a “Walk Like and Egyptian” competition. Play the song by the Bangles as well.
  4. Have a competition where the cabin that builds a human pyramid first wins. Groups must have 10 people.
  5. Dates were a favorite food of the Ancient Egyptians. Make Ancient Egyptian “Date Candy“.
