More than 80 projects drawn from archaeological evidence and Bible descriptions make Old Testament Days come alive in this activity guide for children ages 5 to 12. Children can enjoy a desert picnic of dried figs, goat's milk cheese, and lentil stew, or make a loose tunic like the one young Isaac wore on his family's trek to the Promised Land nearly 4,000 years ago. They can make a painted throwing stick or a wooden paddle doll like the ones Moses might have played with in the Pharaoh's palace, and build toy instruments like those the Israelites used to celebrate their return to Jerusalem in 300 B.C. Games, recipes, crafts and more.
Although this is an activity book, it contains many interesting and useful historical articles which we highly recommend reading whether or not you do the activites.
