Ten Foot High Pyramid Tent

  • My husband took 10′ wood curtain rods and drilled a hole in each near the end, then tied together with rope. I sewed up 2 cotton drop cloths (9′ x 12′) into a cover, leaving one seam half open for an entrance.
  • Decorated entrance with blow-up palm trees.
  • We put foam mats across the floor of it, threw blankets over them and called it a day. The kids loved sleeping in the pyramid that night!

How to Make Egyptian Pyramid Cake Made Out of Gingerbread

  • Bake gingerbread in 2 sheet pans, then cut into 4 equilateral triangles with 9.5″ sides. Cut a paper pattern first.
  • Glue these gingerbread triangles onto a cardboard pyramid form with royal icing.
  • Set out trays of hard candy – jelly beans, mini M&Ms, bottle caps, Twizzler Pull-n-Peels, etc., and let the kids go to town on the cake!

Mummy Cookie Decorating

  • Created a 7″ mummy cookie cutter using tin and scissors.
  • Cut out gingerbread mummies for the kids to decorate and eat when the party was just starting. Used the same candy as for giant pyramid.
  • That’s the mummy cookie on the left. Fancy!

Treasure Cakes

  • Small pyramid cake pans: Each child also had an individual pyramid case baked using steel pyramid pans. (Pans are available from http://cooksdream.com – The Ultimate Baker.)
  • Set the pyramid pans into small baking pans or glass Pyrex measuring cups to bake.
  • I put a prize into one cake by cutting out a small core from the bottom using a grapefruit/apple corer, inserting a blue M&M and then replacing the core and proceeding with frosting the cakes. (I tried baking the candy inside, but it just dropped to the point of the pyramid and was exposed.)
  • The child that picked the cake with the M&M received a prize.

Golden Isis Pinata for Kid’s Egyptian Birthday Party

  • To create the golden Isis Pinata, I started with a Hula Girl pinata and converted her using gold metallic tissue paper (available from http://www.nashvillewraps.com).
  • Downloaded photo of beaded necklace to cut out and decorate the pinata.

Egyptian Party Games

Mummy Wrapping
 
  • Teams of two kids take turns wrapping the other with toilet paper. First team with a completely wrapped up partner wins. Big Hit!
Treasure Hunt
 
  • Created “clues” from clip art and hieroglyphs. Provided a Rosetta stone key that the kids used to decode the hieroglyphs to read the clue. I use clip art from the Microsoft Clip Art Gallery.
  • Clip art pictures placed around the house that held clues on the back. Be sure to put out decoy pictures as well to mix things up.
  • Hide prizes for all the kids in the final location – we used the washing machine.
Played Pin The Beard On King Tut
  • Used King Tut clip art and made copies of his beard for the kids to try to place in the correct spot. Poor Tut!!
