Each book in this delightful, child-friendly series focuses on a different period in history, from Ancient Egypt right up to World War 2.
Children will love learning about each era, and then following the simple instructions to make useful or interesting objects from that time.
Age-appropriate and accessible, the books are jam-packed with great ideas and perfect for use at home or in the classroom.
In Craft Box: Ancient Egyptians, you can learn how to make hieroglyphic stone, a Pharaoh's mask, an Egyptian headband, a scarab paperweight, an armlet, a fan, a lucky amulet, a wind chime, a papyrus scroll, a sarcophagus, an animal mummy and a lotus lantern!
Fun facts on every spread give background information about Ancient Egypt and its people, from the lives of pharaoahs, to mummies and slaves.
A Further Information spread suggests age-appropriate websites and books, so children can go away and learn more about the ancient Egyptians.
A glossary explains any tricky words, and will help to further increase children's knowledge and understanding of the era.
