Ancient civilizations for kids is what to do to have the kids in an educatuional mode, you want to visit with your child an archaeological site, take an excursion that will be enjoyable and instructive. Here are some tips for the perfect archaeological excursion.

Prepare for Ancient civilizations for kids. Buy to your child a book before or on this monument are planning to visit (eg "Half magic hour at Delphi," Pataki ed or 'Pausanias in ancient Messene, "Kaleidoscope ed) or more generally in archeology (eg, very richly illustrated book is "Archaeology" published by researchers). Good idea is also a book of mythology. Finally, you will find books ... is reading: from Savalia versions released a table with three dimensional volume within which there is one with the Labyrinth - a fun game before visiting Knossos!

Make different program depending on age. Children under five do not understand many of the ruins (this does not mean that they will enjoy the ride ...). Of the six onwards however, each exploring the mystery intrigues. When you pass the 13 are now not "follow" because there simply are no longer children, but teens who want to get their distances from the family - although you never know: the clay masks from the rituals of lashes in small archaeological Museum of Sparta can spur their attention! Also, just like adults, and children have different tastes depending on the personality or gender. The ancient quarry Alikes, Thassos is a wonderful proposal if your kid has appealed to the "technology", while ten years your daughter will be impressed with the remnants of the Byzantine princess costume in the small museum at Mystras.

Go for the brown signs! Archaeological visit is not just stroll into a large and organized space. In Greece, there are hundreds of small sites (often at great sites), that the local tax authority has signaled to these characteristic brown signs. Yes, of course the proposal Vergina is unsurpassed, but if you make a tour by car, it should be spontaneous and follow the small road that show you the tags. Some arched bridge or a grassy tomb waiting for you at the end of the route ...

Do not overestimate the strengths of children. In Knossos, the afternoons of August the thermometer reaches 45 ° C and has an incredible queue outside the throne room. You may be willing to endure the burning sun, but your children are not ready to make so many sacrifices for the Minoan civilization ...

Join the past and today. If you are in Olympia, centrists their interest in speaking about the "wheels", the statues were erected to remind athletes that tried to win races with fraud - who said that doping is a privilege only of the modern Olympic Games?

Focus on other issues. If your child asks about how kept the archaeological site, encourage her to talk to a guard. Sometimes the guards can give you a completely different picture - I still remember the time I visited the Neolithic settlement chick Sesklo in Magnesia and we got chatting to the guard who was working as a laborer in the excavations ...

Buy something leaving: a postcard, a small booklet you are more organized archaeological site with a small item shop. Most are quite expensive, but your child will be a lively memento of the visit.

Can your child excited about the visit to Dion, but if there are all these scattered columns not to excite. Respect a possible negative response, or even better make the most of. If the temples are visible in Dion just rubble and tell you, you can open a long discussion which will explain how old are the "spoils" to see. You can also play a game where you imagine cases what remains of our own time after 2500 years.

Let children guide you - enthusiasm may prove what is most exciting. The Underground Cistern at Mycenae with the damp stairs leading to the underground gallery or cave in Alepotrypa Diros surely excite their imagination. Ask them to describe how you believe that people lived then. Their descriptions will surely make you and you see the monument with other eyes!
