If you have multiple children, you no doubt have noticed the unique inclinations 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 the detailed figures of twenty people who shaped history, such as Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great, Hannibal, 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 standard fasteners to allow their arms and legs to move and their swords and shields to flash. Matching pre-colored action figures are also included for the meticulous child who wants to color it exactly right.
Color the detailed figures, then use a hole punch and standard fasteners to animate their arms and legs. Plan to do one figure every 1-2 weeks, or time them to match up with Story of the World 1 as outlined in our handbooks.

Cyrus the Great
