Lesson plan – Carving Gingerbread Hieroglyphs

Asalamualaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu ladies
We are currently studying the Ancient Egyptians in History and like many, my kids found the concept of hieroglyphics so interesting! So, I decided to do a little project…but not the usual making a scroll and painting.

Instead, we decided to make our stone tablets from gingerbread and ‘carve’ our hieroglyphics like the Ancient Egyptians did!

What you will need:
Gingerbread biscuit dough
Clingfilm to wrap and chill
Butter knives/toothpicks/forks
Rolling pin
Cookie cutters – optional, I had these on hand so my 3 year old could join in.
