Egyptian Muffin Tin Meal

There was no theme this week for Muffin Tin Monday, so here is what we did, (we didn't serve it in a muffin tin, because I don't have very many yet, we are working on that)

We have been learning about ancient Egypt. So what better way to make it stick, then with food. So we had a royal Assyrian meal. We made some Egyptian bread (Sebatu Rolls) , we had grapes, apples, figs, dates, and grape juice, (they drank barley beer and wine, but that's not for us). The girls made royal crowns, and T made an Egyptian bracelet and we made toga robes (out of our bed sheets). For a snack the day before we had Overnight Fig Cakes.

Here is a picture of us making our crowns.


Here we are enjoying our lunch on the floor. (Ancient Egyptians didn't have tables and chairs, or silverware.)


We really love History Odyssey
One of our favorite books with many fun learning activities are from this book: Ancient Egyptians And Their Neighbors.

Love how your meal is an extension of your learning- seems like in homeschooling, EVERYTHING becomes a extension of unit learning!

looks like this was really fun! I love when learning, food and crafts collide! This was my first muffin tin monday, and I didn't have a tin to use, either...the only one I have is rusty looking and was being used...
