As a former teacher I love doing crafts with my son and integrating learning into them. Each week I bring you a craft that is fun, educational, and frugal! November 4th is King Tut Day to celebrate the date of the discovery of King Tutankhamen’s Tomb. My first public school job was 2nd grade so we did A LOT of Egytian lessons. One of my favorites was always helping the kids create their own cartouche. A cartouche is a basically a name plate for royalty in Ancient Egypt. I usually had my students copy heiroglyphics to spell out their name but since Will is a bit young for that, I have tweaked this craft to fit his age. If you have missed past kids frugal fun crafts, check them out here! Also, don’t forget to read the entire post to see educational activities at the bottom!
