Papyrus Painting | Ancient Egypt

As part of our Ancient Egypt unit, we got a papyrus paper making kit that came with two sheets of papyrus: one printed, one plain. Using paints from a previous tile painting kit, the kids (age 4, 9 and 13) painted in the images on the papyrus. We also painted on a set of papyrus that came with six pieces, but did not contain papyrus for making paper. All projects can be found at Rainbow Resource.

You can find the Papyrus Making Kit, Papyrus Activity Kit, and Paint Your Own Papyrus from Rainbow Resource.
