Flowers crown!

The Ancient Greeks introduced the circular wreath as a symbolic reward for the best athletics, soldiers and artists. Flower crowns were also worn to festivities and celebrations to honor the gods. Big Kids made their own one to celebrate the spring with:

We ate the food of the Greek Gods!

Ambrosia is the name of a delicious fruit salad made with magic properties! The gods ate this food regularly to maintain immortality, super powers and strength. There are those who say that if mortals tried Ambrosia, they eternal life would also be granted. To make this Elixir we used:

*1 cup of pineapple chunks
*1 cup of mandarin orange slices
*4 dates cut into bite-size chunks
*4 dried figs cut into bite-size chunks
*1 cup pomegranate seeds
*2 cups plain yogurt
*2 tablespoons of honey
*2 tablespoons of coconut flakes


Buddings Big Kids Balm!

Cosmetics were already important in Ancient Greece. Did you know that olive oil was an essential ingredient for lipsticks and eye shadows?

Olive oil contains antioxidants and vitamins and Big Kids found out that it was a great hands moisturizer too! After having this powerful ingredient in our hands...we could overcome any challenge! So we made an amazing lip balm using:

*Olive Oil
*Coconut Oil
*Biodegradable tubs


Fire and Olympic Games!

Thousands of years in the making, the Olympics began as part of festival honoring the god Zeus in the rural Greek town of Olympia. Big Kids learned about the games symbols, rules and curiosities!

We also watched Armand D’Angour video where he explains the evolution of the Olympics in detail!

To make the most brighter flame you need:

*Crepe paper
*Black paper
