    What could be a more appropriate activity to accompany your study of Ancient Egypt than making your own papyrus? This kit includes instructions and enough strips of Egyptian papyrus stem to create one sheet of papyrus. The process takes several days, and a lot of soaking, but when you're done, you can use your sheet of authentic papyrus for your own unique Egyptian work of art, or a scroll! Please note that this kit does have a distinctive salty, dried-plant "aroma" which may be more offensive to some noses than others. ~ Jess

       Projects are just a natural fit with social studies, but coming up with project ideas can be time consuming for a teacher/parent. Get kids interacting with history in fun and creative ways with these 25 projects you can do with a minimum of art/craft supplies (scissors, glue, colored pencils, rubber bands, file folders, craft sticks, boxes and resealable plastic bags.) That’s the entire supply list! Students follow clear instructions to complete the projects. At the end of each creation is a self-evaluation and an assessment rubric for the instructor. It is very easy to use. It’s a great way to get kids to learn following step-by-step instructions too! Some of the projects include: an origami caterpillar with information on each flap, a rubber band book, a shape book, matchbook report, a biography hanger, and loads more. There are enough objective tasks that do not require a student to be super creative, but the creative kids can still put their own spin on the products they create. Oh, and for the non-creative adult, you can do this one! ;-)   ~ Sara

    Sometimes, it does pay to wait. I wanted to stock my very favorite beginning origami book but it wasn't packaged with origami paper. Instead, the publisher carried a product called Fun with Origami that contained a different origami book and paper. I really liked the concept, but the book that came with it was not nearly as clear and simple to follow as Easy Origami. So, I held off...and - voíla - Dover packaged my favorite beginning origami book with twenty-four 7" x 7" high quality sheets of colorful origami paper and called it Fun with Easy Origami. While the title is similar to their Fun with Origami offering, the products are not the same. If you're a beginner, or you're children want to start paper folding, this is the place to start. Even children can follow the diagrams with no adult help. It includes 32 projects. Step-by-step large, clear diagrams make folding easy. Text is large, clear, and also simple. First projects have all the instructions on one page. The rest are a double-page spread so you don't have to flip back and forth. I've tested a lot of different beginning books, but this is by far the easiest to use. My twins, when they were eight years old, enthusiastically and proudly folded project after project until they ran out of paper, which inspired me to also offer paper refills (located in the Craft Supplies & Materials section). Besides helping to refine their fine motor skills, it's a great way to practice reading carefully and following directions!
