Read. Explore. Learn. (Life in Egypt.)

I love creative ways of teaching my Bunnies – it’s such a great opportunity to build relationship with them.  So today I’m linking up with JDaniel4’s Mom on her Read.Explore.Learn.Summer Learning Challenge.

..

For history, we are reading a few cool books. This is one of them.

It looks at the fascinating details of everyday life in the past. We get to find out, for example, what a Roman kitchen looked like, how Ancient Egyptians took showers, how a knight put his armor on and who used wheelbarrows with sails.

After our lesson on life in Egypt, we made these ultra-cool Egyptian collars.

..

We all got into stitches as I stripped the clothes off the Bunnies, put on the collars, and wrapped an unfolded nappy cloth around each of their waists – loin cloths!

(Alas! I shall not post their photos here because Google looks like it will last for sometime, and the kids may just be a wee bit embarrassed ….. if they somehow surface in the future!)

    This counts as an entry in the Summer Reading Challenge.

    That’s so creative with the collar and loin cloth. I love it. I can only imagine your kids wearing those – yeah, can only imagine.
