I'm sure this has been done a million times, but I'm asking again anyway. :)

My daughter likes Brain Pop a lot, and at this point has gone through quite a lot of what they have right now. It doesn't have to be like that, but anything your kids have found engaging would be great. Thanks!

http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/forkids/ has a make a mummy game and build a pyramid game. My girls enjoyed them. I have not checked out the rest of the site. We found it through our Usborne internet linked world history.

Yes, I especially think the liquified brain pouring out of the nose was a nice touch. At least it was in cartoon. The pyramid one is tough though. I tried with my 6 yo and then my 13yo tried several times and we all got fired by the pharoah in the end.

Here are the activities were the kids can enjoy have fun paper, bag puppet, indoor basket ball, make a foil crown, cardboard box car, balloon bop, pillow jump, coloring pages, paintings with paper, super cheap. Dollar store pain brush, container with water....Lengthy minutes of fun painting the sidewalk, the steps, the fence, etc. I make my kids engage in coloring pages as this is one of the best activity for kids. I download the images from this site on regular basis. I have downloaded the letter a coloring pages for my DS

Top 10 Free Printable Letter A Coloring Pages Online (http://www.momjunction.com/articles/letter-a-coloring-pages-little-ones_0084707/)

This activity is one of the best for kids. They can learn something from this. So i use to engage my kid in doing this activity.
