Pharaoh's Crown

As part of the chapter on Egypt, we made the Pharaoh's crown.  We own this Ancient Egypt book and it has lovely pictures and easy to read texts about Egypt.  As a bonus there are also little crafts you can do on various things from making crowns, to pyramids to all kind of things!  This book is D's favorite and you can often find her sitting in a quiet corner reading through this book.

Anyway here are our crowns.  we used red and white cardstock, eyeballed the sizes and used tape to hold everything together.  We used gold acrylic paints to make the snake heads.  I attached an elastic band to keep it secure while wearing it.

This has been used in various dress up and role play activities!
