Barbie and the 1001 death rituals (aka killing two birds with one stone)....

DD (6) is HE and has been v interested in Ancient Egypt of late.

So we set about mummifying Barbie - anointing, salting, removing plasticine innards and interring in canopic jars, making a sarcophagus, the lot.

So DD learns plenty, and we rid the house of one piece of over-engineered unrealistically shaped bit of plastic tat.

Next, sky burials, and then maybe pushing Barbie out to sea on a burning boat.... further suggestions welcome!

Excellent! I shall bear this in mind when one or both of the DDs are bought a Barbie (as they inevitably will) by an unthinking relative. Can't stand the things grin

You've missed out the buddist cremation, hindu cremation, muslim burial and zoroastrian tower of silence.
Our dd had 24 barbies when we left thailand, i'd never bought her a single one. it never occured to me that their disposal could be educational, they all went to an orphanage.

Cremation might be a bit carcinogenic though, maybe focus on burial rituals... sorry, this is not my area of expertise!
