12.30 - 1.30pm / 2 - 3pm

£2 per child (plus booking fee)

A relaxed craft session for families with children who have disabilities or additional needs.

The Ancient Egyptians believed that after death, the body and soul would travel on to the afterlife. It was important to take all the things they would need with them for their new life, including servants! These servants were in the form of dolls called Shabtis and were placed in the tomb with the mummy. Ideally there would be 365 of them, one for every day of the year!

Come and make your own Shabti and decide which jobs it will do for you.
