Ancient Greece Activities

This site offers lots of good ancient Greek crafts for the upper elementary school child, including directions for a paper mache Trojan horse, a pasta drama mask, and more!

If you don’t mind putting in the extra effort, creating a paper mache horse makes good sense when you want to illustrate how soldiers hid inside the Trojan horse! Here are instructions!

Make a Trojan Horse

Print this paper Trojan Horse for students to cut, color (optional), and assemble from DLTK’s Crafts for Kids.

Kids Craft:  Zeus

This site has several characters from Greek mythology to print, color (optional), and assemble. The only other supply needed is a toilet paper tube. Characters available are Zeus, Perseus, Medusa, Harpy, the Cyclops, and Athena, all from DLTK’s Crafts for Kids.

Use rounds of cardboard and classical Greek Shield patterns to make your own authentic shields.

Use the Olympic Award Certificate from A Book In Time to fill out and keep in your notebook as a memory of all the fun.
