Ornate sarcophagi are often found in ancient Egyptian burial sites. Create an artistic treasure fit for a queen or king.
Ancient Egyptian kings and queens were often buried in elaborately decorated chambers. A stone or cement box (sarcophagus) was usually found inside the tomb. Images and words on the sarcophagus showed important events and interests in the person’s life. A sarcophagus could contain a coffin of solid silver, a gold mummy-board, and even a solid gold mask covering the face of the mummified pharaoh!
Choose authentic designs. Students find out more about ancient Egyptian burial procedures so they can create a realistic sarcophagus. These are a few ideas to get started. Sketch Egyptian patterns and designs with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils.
Decorate the sarcophagus. Cover the art area with recycled newspaper. Air-dry the project after each of these steps: Paint a recycled box with Crayola Tempera and a brush. Paint patterns on the box with metallic colors of Crayola Premier Tempera. Add Crayola Glitter Glue to highlight prominent designs.
Cut a flap on top of the box. Cut a paper strip with Crayola Scissors. Cover it with glue from a Crayola Glue Stick and roll up tightly to form a knob. Glue it on the flap with Crayola School Glue. If you wish, fill the box with other replica burial treasures.
