Michael's Grade 2 class had an Egypt Day today. As usual he is miserly with the details, but we do know that we made him an Anubis costume, and there were 2 other Anubises. Or Anuba. He is the jackal-headed god of the afterlife. I turned a black baseball cap into Anubis with some black cardboard, staples, and a black-painted ping-pong ball for a nose. Elf made a kind of capey-robe, and the ensemble was completed with a staff (stake from garden) and a large cardboard ankh.
The most popular character was Cleopatra - most of the girls and Mrs Sellers all went for the black bob and gold bling. Our last words as we dropped off the god were "Don't wave your staff around and hit anyone - hold it upright LIKE ANUBIS WOULD!!".
