BEYOND THE BOOK ACTIVITY

Invoke the explorer within and find something in your family history no matter how far back you choose to go and become an Antiquities traveler yourself.
Time travel and create your own mystery.
What piece of that history would you hold onto or use to travel back and forth from that time to the present?

The Great Fire of 1922 or Haileybury Fire which covered 650 square miles, that took out many towns in Northern Ontario in Canada is very relevant to my families on my mothers side; both parents
A keepsake blanket from the river that helped so many stay alive would be my choice as the Magickal link object.
Marion Lyttle a direct descendant was interviewed and talked specifically about the 3 blankets they were able to get away with and those blankets kept them alive. Her father and uncle took turns throwing water on the blankets through the night.
Just as personal intrigue and curiosity please leave a comment if you would like about your piece of history.


2ND ACTIVITY (not a follow up to first activity just a different activity mindset)
Create your own Hieroglyphs. What better way to send messages or entrust a secret code to your adventure then with your own symbolic language.

Of course my kiddo left out the answer key as it is his secret code.
