How about a cheese box sarcophagus with a mummy carved in soap or clay,
sculpey scarab pins, tooling foil face masks, cardboard pyramid big enough
for the kids to crawl through, Egyptian paper dolls (kids get figure drawing
and knowledge of costume customs), a frieze using hieroglyphs, hieroglyphs
carved into ivory soap, self-portraits as Egyptians and what would be
contained in their own tomb, life size mummies made of butcher paper drawn
and painted on (don't forget gold tempera...they love it) and stuffed with
newspaper...fills a desk well for an impressive open house. Hope these
ideas help. I'm sure others on this list have more ideas. Have fun and
good luck. Linda
