Teresa is studying Egypt in school right now. They've had a lot of fun little project they've done. They painted scarabs on rocks, drew hieroglyphs, and mummified a barbie. The next step was making a sarcophagus for the mummy.
This is Teresa's, she used salt dough on top of a shoe box covered in some fabric we had that looked like stone. Then she painted it. They had to put things in the sarcophagus, so she made a few things and went through her "collection" to add lucky charms.

(Her "collection" is stuff she finds, ever since she was very small she has collected - well, anything. It was mostly full of sticks and rocks in the beginning, but now she has charms and stones and beads and buttons, string, anything she finds, it goes in her collection)

That is so cool, I might have to steal this idea too. I love that Teresa is a couple years ahead, and so creative.
