Each week Mom On Dealz brings us a craft that is fun, educational, and frugal! November 4th is King Tut Day to celebrate the date of the discovery of King Tutankhamen Tomb. A car-touche is a basically a name plate for royalty in Ancient Egypt.
If you have missed past kids frugal fun crafts, check them out here! Also, don’t forget to read the entire post to see educational activities at the bottom!
1 Piece of Cardboard
1. Cut an oval from the construction paper and the cardboard.
2. Glue the construction paper on top of the cardboard.
3. Write your child’s name on the paper.
4. Have your child browse the magazine and pick out pictures that represent their favorite things.
- Language Arts: Help your child identify the letters of their name on the car-touche. When browsing the magazine, have your child also find pictures that start with the same letters as their name.
- Social Studies/History: Explain to your child that Ancient Egyptians used Hieroglyphics to communicate and record history. Tell them that hieroglyphics is basically “picture writing”. Have your child describe other family members by drawing pictures or finding more pictures to represent them in the magazine.
- Math: Have your child count how many letters in their name and how many pictures they cut and glue on the car-touche. Also discuss the shape of the car-touche (an oval).
A wonderful way to store this as a keepsake is to use a laminator. By laminating your child’s crafts, they will stay in great shape for years to come!
