The Ancient Egyptians

"Brilliant workshop - thank you!  Children who aren't normally engaged thoroughly enjoyed it."

Bring the Ancient Egyptians to life in your classroom with this one day, fully interactive workshop. We provide costumes and make-up for everyone as we take the children back to an era 5000 years ago.  Mummify a friend, try your hand at Egyptian crafts and live life as a Pharoah before travelling back to the future to search for ancient tombs.


Background & Culture

We take a look at life in Egypt about 5000 years ago.  All of the children will be invited to wear costumes and 'Egyptian Eyes'.

The Origin of the Pharoah

Where did the first Pharoahs come from, and how did they become so important?

Egyptian Life

Everyone works together to re-create our own Egyptian settlement. A hands-on carousel of up to 8 authentic activities

Mummification and the Afterlife

The children help to remove internal

organs and mummify their Pharoah.

Please note: no children are harmed

in this exercise!

The Magic of Hierolglyphs

Just why are hieroglyphs so special?

Each child will make a pewter cartouche to take home keep.

Valley of the Kings

A fast and furious round of 'Egyptian Tomb Raider' introduces the Valley of the Kings - audience participation an absolute must!

Original Artefacts

artefacts and look at historical sources.
