Much to my history-loving husband’s dismay, none of our children were born with his passion for studying the past. As a result, it takes a lot of effort and creativity to make history interesting and memorable for them. I love when I find resources that make this task easier for me and more enjoyable for them. Today I’m sharing some fun resources on Ancient Egypt for kids.
