King Tut Day!

king-tut_maskKing Tut Day is celebrated on November 04, 2016. It celebrates the date of the discovery of King Tutankhamen’s Tomb. The discovery of the tomb as a whole was one of the most significant and famous archeological discoveries in modern times. What better way to celebrate than a creative project from Nasco?

You know Nasco carries a vast selection of paper, colored pencils, colored markers, and crayons. Why not put those to use by making your own pyramid? Our Pyramids (9715191) collection is precut, white, coated card stock that easily folds into a 3-D pyramid you can decorate. Or how about stencils? Try Pacon® Hieroglyphics Stencils (9728358), durable, washable plastic stencils with a variety of people, animals, and every day shapes.

Posters are the way to go, King Tut Day or any day! How about our Egyptian Art Poster Set (9729164), which includes three beautifully illustrated and extensively researched Egyptian themes, including Nefertari and the Tomb of Seti. An informative poster comes your way with the Egyptian Art Poster – The Ancient Egyptians (9729163), measuring 24” x 36”.
