Studying pyramids and mummies? Craft a replica of an amulet. This pendant gleams with symbols of Ancient Egypt!
Symbols were very important to Ancient Egyptians. The scarab is a Kephri or dung beetle. Doesn’t sound very powerful or even pretty, but to ancient Egyptians what the beetle did was significant to its meaning.
A Kephri pushes a ball of dirt along the ground. It represented resurrection, the life that comes after death, day that comes after night.
Usually the scarab was carved from precious stone such as lapis lazuli or turquoise. Do research on Ancient Egypt. Visit a museum that has an Egyptology collection to see the stylistic design of the scarab.
A royal personage might have worn a gold scarab. To make your scarab, knead white Crayola Model Magic® into an oval.
Use the handle end of a Crayola Paint Brush to score your design into the Model Magic. Draw a stylistic head, antennae, and wings (or some other Egyptian design). Press a hole in the top of your scarab. Air-dry the beetle overnight.
Cover your art area with recycled newspaper. Paint the scarab using gold Crayola Premier Tempera. Air-dry the paint.
Highlight the scarab design with a dark Crayola Fine Line Marker.
Thread yarn through the hole in scarab. Secure the ends with adhesive tape to proudly wear around your neck.
