The little girls (5 and 12) and I are studying Ancient History via History Quest. Yesterday, we read our History Hop about an embalmer. After we finished our reading, we decided to mummify hot dogs. Ada loved mixing salt and baking soda together to make our version of "natron." After covering the hot dog with natron, we sprinkled it with cinnamon. While we worked, we wore our Ancient Egyptian masks and listened to Egyptian music. Ada is now offically Egypt obsessed after this activity!
