Exploring the Pyramids as a Family

Exploring the pyramids as a family has always been a travel bucket list!

I think the kids really got excited about the pyramids from reading The Red Pyramid by Rick Riorden. I highly suggest this book as a way to engage your kids in Egyptology and all the other great history they’re going to learn in Egypt.
