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.
