Ancient Egyptians believed that anything placed within a sarcophagus would accompany the spirits of the dead into the afterlife. Kids can learn more about this ancient tradition by using a shoebox to make a sarcophagus of their own. After they've finished making and decorating a sarcophagus fit for a Pharaoh, they'll find and make special treasures for the mummy to take with him to the afterlife. This activity encourages creativity and teaches kids about history at the same time!
