Famous Figures of Ancient Times
If you have multiple children, then you no doubt have noticed the unique proclivities of each one. Our middle child lived for art. Her most prized possessions were a tape dispenser, scissors, and endless amounts of paper. Famous Figures of Ancient Times was made for such a child.

While you read historical accounts aloud, your avid artist can color in the detailed figures of twenty people who shaped history, such as Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great, Hannibal and his elephant, and others. Colorful characters are printed on heavy cardstock with perforated pages for trouble-free removal. Cut out the pieces, punch holes where directed, and attach common fasteners to allow their arms and legs to move and their swords and shields to flash. For the meticulous child who wants to color it exactly right, matching pre-colored action figures are also included.

"Great for kids who like crafts: Detailed, colored figures from history, from Narmer to Augustine, to cut out and assemble. The figures are on cardstock with moveable joints. Good for decorating timelines or just for fun." - Susan Wise Bauer and Jessie Wise, authors of The Story of the World

    Great book!

    My daughter looks forward to this each week! Not only has it helped her gain an interest in history, she is now excellent at using scissors :)

    My seven year old loves these! She can stage her own stories with them and "make history better sometimes. More happy." Because she thinks history is too sad some of the time. She likes to cut them out herself and put them together. Great for motor kills and imaginative play. I would recommend it.

    We love these!

    My girls love these so much! Paper dolls, but so much more fun. Note that each paper doll comes with a colored version and a black and white version. My girls alternate on which ones they want to do. This is also great for developing advance scissor skills.

    Famous figures of ancient times

    A fun and engaging way to teach about famous people in history. My kids enjoy both the design your character and the character that’s already colored for them.

    Puppet time

    Sometimes my daughter plays with them like puppets. She remembers most of their names. Great with Story of the World!
