Our country was Egypt, and we had set up a booth with pictures and information. Earlier that day, the girls helped us make stuffed grape leaves (thank heaven for Middle Eastern delis) and cut cartouches out of construction paper. These were threaded on yarn, and the troops that visited us got to put their name on the cartouche in hieroglyphics. They all loved it! (though the grape leaves didn't go over very well!)
See food section for stuffed grape leaves.
(Cartouche = a scroll like ornamentation; oval ring enclosing name and title of Egyptian king)
