Traveling and history go hand in hand. When I’m traveling, then naturally I’m learning all about the history of a place as well. Visiting different monuments and locations in any country makes it more meaningful if I’m already aware of the culture and history from its past. If you are not already aware- pick up a local guidebook (what better way to figure it out?)
It is never too early to start teaching history to children in an entertaining fashion.
Egypt is a fascinating place filled with the history of art, culture, and ancient civilizations. I want to pass the desire to learn about other places and their history to Little Man. It needs to be fun, yet mingled with little facts that he can grasp onto. Safari Ltd. has a wonderful Ancient Egypt set which Little Man and I both love.
They are small enough for him to carry in his pocket and colorful enough to keep his attention when playing with them. Adding little facts about each one helps build his knowledge of history and having fun at the same time. He can already identify a Sphinx, and knows that Egyptians feel it symbolizes strength and wisdom. As he gets older, I can add more information for him to remember about the Sphinx. As he grows, so will his knowledge.
Safari Lt offers quality products in each toob so I know that as Little Man gets older, his Egyptian Toob set will endure the test of time and a little boy’s play.
