Day 008: A day in Ancient Greece

We have been studying Ancient Greece for a while with our curriculum "The Story of the World". (See my post about our history.) I had picked up this book: Spend the Day in Ancient Greece,
and we loved reading it. The kids begged me to make them each a chiton, so we went to a local craft store to buy some fabric. Back home, we measured some, I sewed some, and we tried on again and again until they like the results.

May I introduce my Greek boy and girl:

Peanut is wearing the girl version of a simple chiton.

Coqui wanted to add an himation to his boy version of the chiton.
