For a long time now Eloise has been asking and asking to see the mummies at the British Museum. Having seen them in books and cartoons she fell in love. So she could not believe it when I told her they were at the museum. Last half term we finally headed to the British museum to see the infamous mummies.....
I dont think the real life mummies lived up to their cartoon image and she found them all a little scary. She now has a new found obsession with death and keeps drawing dead characters like this one from one of her books showing a dead mouse who has been stabbed in the back just like Gebelein man. To think I taught her this.... how do you explain that to the teachers : )
After all that her favourite part of the day was climbing up and down the steps in the atrium area. Here they are
with their rainbow and cupcake protest badges...well I guess the world
can never have enough cupcakes or rainbows : )
