Historyetc – Nazca

5100713374_15a1d378ef_b Oops it would appear I am a little behind again! A couple of weeks ago we had another Historyetc day this time looking at Nazca. Lacking inspiration and crafts we broadened our searches and came up with some fab activities 🙂

I took along mesoamerican weaving, which worked really well. There was also making papier mache Olmec Heads, peg dolls, Olmec fish, cooking with cornmeal – cornbread and mini corn tortillas along with roasted sweet potato :), Nazca lines in sand (draw out design in glue and sprinke with sand), peg dolls embroidered with either birds, 2 headed snakes or anthropomorphic characters and finally Nazca lines in the garden using string.

In between all of which left plenty of time for playing and bouncing on the trampoline.
