Make your own Canopic Jars!


In Ancient Egypt, after you died, your body was preserved in a special way. Preserving your body was an important job in ancient Egypt. Part of the process was to remove your internal organs. Your organs were carefully stored in Canopic jars. There were four jars. Each jar represented one of the four sons of the Egyptian god Horus, so that they could watch over you in the after life.


Follow the link below for a fun crafty way to create your own canopic jars (complete with internal organs!)

If you don't have the resources you need for the task above, why not have a go at sketching the 4 canopic jars like in the example at the top of the page. Think carefully about shading and detail.
