The Trojan Horse

I gotta be honest. Ancient Greece is dragging on FOR.EV.ER. Sierra just doesn't seem even half as interested in Greece as she was in Egypt, so that makes it less fun for both of us. There are certain parts that draw her attention, but for the most part it just doesn't measure up to Egypt. She was even more interested in the Ancient Egyptian income tax system than she is in Greece. We aren't to the Olympics or Mythology yet, I'm hoping those draw her interest a bit more.

The picture above is her Trojan horse she made from this template. This activity took A LOT more parental involvement than I expected. We ended up printing out the template, gluing it onto thick card stock, then she colored it and we let it dry. I had to help significantly with cutting it out and assembling it. She has had a lot of fun playing with it though and she can tell you the whole story.

We made these burritos for a little taste of Greek cooking too. Josh and I liked them, the kids didn't. They did pick out the chicken and eat that and they actually like hummus, but the whole combination was a bit much for them. I would like to try making baklava, but I've never done it before, so we'll see how that turns out. Seems like a fun recipe to involve a 6 year old in with all that layering though.
