Fun with Hieroglyphs

by Catharine Roehrig and staff of Metropolitan Museum of Art

      Fun with Hieroglyphs is a book plus stamps collection that any child fascinated with secret codes or life in ancient Egypt will have fun playing with.

This innovative kit not only teaches the sounds and letters of the hieroglyphic alphabet but it also includes an alphabet chart, along with 24 hieroglyphic stamps and an ink pad. Using the chart as their guide, children eight years of age and older can use the stamps and book to write messages, create designs and make cards.

Also, if the youngster shares the information with his or her friends they will have their own special code that most people will not be able to decipher.
