We've been studying mummies, pyramids and all that fun stuff in history. One of the activities in the book was building a pyramid out of sand and glue. A few days ago we mixed up the stuff for our bricks and have been waiting for them to dry ever since. It took longer than we thought and they never really dried out. So..our pyramids are pretty crumbly. However, the boys still had a blast with this. I won't be surprised if they build other stuff really soon.
After building our pyramids we watched a National Geographic Documentary about pyramids. After that, the boys got their toy soldiers to protect their pyramids from the tomb robbers!
