The museum staff did a marvelous job of keeping the kids (and the parents) interested and curious about the exhibits.
Everyone's favorite part was the flashlight tour of the "tomb". A corridor was painted with the story of what happens after you die (according to the Ancient Egyptians). We sat in the dark hallway while the docent pointed her flashlight at the walls, pointing out the various gods and goddesses, and telling their stories. It was a captivating presentation for all but the very youngest of the visitors. There was a tunnel you could crawl through, which the girls loved.

|Using Hieroglyphics to decorate Obelisks|
Everyone liked using hieroglyphics to write their names and simple phrases. Sher Bear found a chart of them in one of our Egypt books, and has been writing things in hieroglyphs ever since.

I cannot believe that I forgot my camera that day! But I did. And the Director of Docents at the museum was kind enough to send me these pictures to include in my blog. Thank you, Ann!
Wish you were here!
