The Ancient Egyptians
 
 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.

Whole day workshops last for around 3 hours and cater for up to 90 children.  We bring enough costumes for everyone - no need to ask the parents!

All of the children will be invited to wear costumes and 'Egyptian Eyes'.
