The Nile River craft - Egyptian Unit study

 Tuesday 2 weeks ago saw us making our own little "Nile River." (idea HERE) We sorted all the goodies we needed, which thankfully we had all around the home and garden! We decided to make our "Nile" with it's two branches into the main river and then decorate it with the Spinx, Pyramids and some wildlife (snakes and a croc!)

The children got a little too excited with the grass seeds so I wasn't sure how well it would go, especially when our river was totally flooded and stayed wet for days!!!

Here is a picture after a week......

and now 2 weeks later!!

With looking at Moses and how he was placed in the Nile in a basket and the plagues with how the first plague was the River Nile being turned to blood it's all worked in really nicely to bring the lesson home for my treasures!! Love it when a theme runs on through our learning!!!
