No curse here! Junior archaeologists and artists alike will have hours of fun with the new Creativity for Kids (Faber-Castell) kit: Ancient Egypt: Paint and Decorate a Pharaoh's Tomb. This twenty five piece set includes: a pyramid backdrop, sarcophagus, mummy, four canopic jars, four foam bases, air dry clay, seven colors of acrylic and metal paint, hieroglyph stickers, rub-off stickers, gauze, markers, sponge, sandpaper and instructions/ideas. Children can wrap their own mummy, sculpt internal organs and paint their sarcophagus and canopic jars. The instructions also include information on Ancient Egypt and hieroglyphic writing. The kit is a great combination of history education and artistic creation.
