Ice eggs - Freeze balloons filled with water and small toys. Cut balloon off and play with eggs outside. Provide spoons for cracking ice and digging treasures out.

Ice Eggs

This activity was a blast! When I saw the forecast last night for warm weather today I got busy filling our freezer with 'ice eggs' for the girls to play with (ok, and me too :-D). This activity is a combination of the Ice Bowling and Alphabet Ice blocks we played last year which were both a huge hit. WE USED: * balloons (round shaped probably work best) * small toys/glass stones * water (tap) * freezer optional : spoons, magnifying glasses, food colouring/tempura paint. Sorry that there are…

Thus far, in our study of ancient Egypt, we keep seeing these beautiful and fascinating boats made of the reeds that grow along the Nile. Even in the 2005 film, Mystery of the Nile, we saw these boats being used in modern times. We decided to make our own miniature version using branches from a willow tree. You could use any type of bendable branch or reed. Step 1. Cut a bunch of branches, the…

Photo Credit: Gabriel Hund-Goschel Tea, the most widely consumed beverage in the world after water, originated in China. According to legend, an ancient ruler nearly 5000 years ago (now considered the Father of Agriculture) decided to take a rest under a Camellia. He boiled himself some water to drink, into which dried leaves from the tree had fallen. These leaves infused the water, making it the first pot of tea.
