Greek Unit: Knucklebones

Books Read:

Knucklebones

We made knucklebones, which was a common an ancient Greek game that the kids would play.

We made our knucklebones from paper mache’ – mixing elmer’s glue and water together to make a paste, we ripped up small pieces of newspaper mixed it all together and formed our knucklbones by squeezing them in our hands.

Once they dried, Treyton painted them.

To play you place the knucklebones on your palm, toss them in the air, flip your hand over and try to catch the bones on the back of your hand. Once you can do one well, add more bones.

Weeks after our unit, Treyton still enjoys playing with these.
