Publishers Description
Royal jubilees, towering pyramids, face painting, and jewelry making? The sky’s the limit when you spend the day in ancient Egypt! Picture this: You get out of bed and, as you go to brush your teeth, you suddenly realize that you’ve traveled back in time over 4,500 years to ancient Egypt. The sun is shining, the Nile River is almost flooding, and everywhere you look, humongous pyramids are being erected. . You have a strong hunch that it’s going to be a truly amazing day. You’ll spend the day with a family in the land of Giza during the Fourth Dynasty and learn all about Egyptian culture with loads of exotic and fun-filled activities. Join ten-year-old Meryt as she practices playing the harp for the festival of Bastet, and make your own music with a string of menat rhythm beads. Be an apprentice scribe to the pyramid builders with Meryt’s twelve-year-old brother, lpy, as you learn to count with hieroglyphs. Join the family for a round of Senet, a traditional Egyptian board game, using a board and game pieces you’ve made yourself. Then, before your day in Egypt is through, make a delicious feast fit for a pharaoh! Ages 8 to 12 Collect the whole Spend the Day series!

Reviews - What do customers think about Spend the Day in Ancient Egypt: Projects and Activities That Bring the Past to Life (Spend The Day Series)?

Excellent craft book!  May 10, 2007
Not only does this book have wonderful crafts that are fun to make, it is also chock full of interesting information! It starts with a description of an Egyptian family, then describes various aspects of their daily lives. The directions for the two games you can make are a bit confusing (I had to look up Senet online to figure out how to play), but the sheer variety of projects, recipes, and background information more than make up for it.
Lots of fun for the kids  Sep 13, 2002
My stepson Jacob loved this. I came home from work one day to find him dressed as a Pharaoh! He loves Egypt and says he wants to become an Egyptologist.
