Some ideas if you’re stuck inside trying not to melt with boredom or bored kids today and have a printer:
Build and/or colour something?
VERY EASY BUILD:
✨Gladiator Paper Dolls (Free!)
✨The Olympians Colouring Book
Colour while learning about the gods and ancient art!
✨Build Your Own Ancient Greek Columns✨
Print in colour or take off the colour layer to add your own polychrome! Simple structure that slots together.
✨Ancient Greek Pots✨
Seven Ancient Greek pottery styles to colour in and learn about
Build a colourful model of Achilles chariot, based on examples of Mycenaean/Bronze Age chariots from frescos. (Includes optional Hector 😬)
Build a version of the Wooden Horse with a little Odysseus to accompany it.
✨ The ENTIRE TROJAN WAR
Black and white. Includes Achilles’ hut, the Achaian fortifications, the Walls of Troy and Skaian Gates, and the Trojan Horse, as well as 53 characters! (Excluding Paris – he’ll be in an file update…)
THE BIG BUILD
✨The Knossos Throne Room and LABYRINTH!
Build two incredible multi-layered playsets: the throne room, based on Knossos and Arthur Evans’ ‘recreation’ (and almost to scale) and the Labyrinth, with moving walls and playable as a game!
Also available separately:
✨Knossos Throne Room
Figures included in each!
I hope these provide a nice distraction, and good luck keeping cool! Remember to keep those blinds down and wear a cool damp towel round your shoulders! And even more luck if like me your child is far too young for any of these things and just wants to go outside 🥵
