A Long, Long Time Ago …
What was it like to live in ancient Egypt? Pharaohs were the kings of the day, hundreds of gods and goddesses controlled your daily life, the pyramids were just being built, and (if you were rich enough) you got to be turned into a mummy!
Even though this period of time started more than 4,000 years ago, people continue to be fascinated by its beauty and mystery. The Everything® Kids' Mummies, Pharaohs, and Pyramids Puzzle and Activity Book is full of fun facts and crazy jokes that will bring you back to the time of the pharaohs. There are word searches, mazes, acrostics, codes, picture puzzles, and much more. Want something different? Try making your own mummy, creating mini-pyramids, or writing in hieroglyphs. Itching to explore? Crawl through a pyramid or peer inside a mummy while you learn about the high-tech ways that ancient Egypt is still being studied today!
To give you a taste of some of the treasures in store, we're going to send you off on an archaeological dig.
