More Paper People
We've been busy over here, and I am honestly proud of the results. In our Homeschool curriculum (story of the world), study of the ancients in the Americas are still several chapters away. But I have been wanting to get prepared for when it comes. Here's our latest offering.
I like my ancient Mayans. Turns out that the Mayans utilized facial tattoos quite commonly. Another thing they did was to insert implants into their teeth! Apparently, archaeologists have unearthed quite a few Mayan skulls where the teeth were ornamented with gems. (I didn't attempt to pull that off in my paper people, but if I thought I could do it well and get away with it, I would have!) You can see images online of these skulls, and as bizarre as it sounds, I think it might have looked rather nice in person. Especially when the individual smiled.
I also created a packet of paper dolls, or "Paper People" as I prefer to call them, for Ancient Greece. Both of these packets include the images of the people themselves, several outfits for male and female, and then a coloring page for the budding artists out there who would like to color their own outfits.
These are going to be great products for your study of the clothing of the era, or even introducing to younger ages. My son played with Ancient Egypt Paper People for several weeks, and I loved hearing him create stories with them.
Each of these historical packets is available in our store and I will soon be making a combined bundle of the three! Follow me here or at my TpT store to keep up on all the latest!
