I know Sunday has passed… but let’s just say life is busy!!! Here is This weeks fabulous GiveAway and it’s another great book brought to you by:

Another great Day One book that takes a stroll through the Egyptian collection at the British Museum. We took a wander ourselves one rainy afternoon through the British Museum a couple of years back and what a great spot it turned out to be!!! Their website is packed with resources you can do a couple of online tours and have a look at specific objects online and they have a brilliant spot for young explorers.


Back to the book it is full of great projects and crafts and factoids and links to the museum site. Pages on the Rosetta Stone and Mummies to name a few. Here is a preview of some of their crafts: An inlaid model and an Assyrian Siege Engine.

In honor of this great GiveAway I challenged my kids to find se7en Activities relating to Ancient Egypt in 30 minutes, it quickly became an hour!!! So here are se7en crafty ideas with love from the gang at se7en:


  1. A good place to start a study of Ancient Egypt would be with a mud pyramid…

  1. Hey, we would love to have this great book. I just wish you were here or I there to guide me through a few days of your school. I only have two children and I would love to see how things work in your home. We hope to win this one and I personally have gone through your blog and I have gotten comments of encouragement from you about my son with reading. thanks Jessica

  2. Ancient Egypt looks like so much fun here! One of us will be visiting Egypt in Core 1 soon, so we’d love a copy. Thanks for another giveaway!

  3. Oh what a fun giveaway!

    We just received our Sonlight box!!! The excitement is palpable. 😉

    Thank you!

  4. This sounds like a great book. My son has been learning about Egypt and Pharoah at Boys’ Brigade, and really enjoying it.

  5. Looks like a great book- we’re studying Ancient Egypt this Fall.

    And I’m going to guess Hood 3.

  6. Hood #5 is the super chef

    I would love this book…and the chance to wrap my kids up in toilet paper…i foresee much fun over that~

  7. I would love this book! I am going to go out on a limb and guess that, instead of the Celebrity Chef, it was his slightly older brother, Hood #4.

  8. I’m gonna steal some of these ideas for our small
    Classical Christian school. I’m assuming your open sharing of these ideas is intended for use by others. Thanks a bunch!

  9. Hi Pdrinkard… Glad you like our ideas – you are most welcome to use the ideas we post about!!! If you blog or publish your results I would like a reference but if you are just having some fun – go ahead!!! Enjoy!!!
