As a summary for your trip, and also great fun for the kids, you should drag the Pharaonic village into your list of fun places to see in Egypt. It is a big island on the Nile in Cairo, surrounded with tall trees to block the view of the modern life outside. People inside are actors, imitating the pharaohs and reliving the past of Egypt.
Growing the land, making boats, and baskets, fishing using the ancient technique of the pharaohs, sculpting statues, mummifying replicas of corpses, making pottery, and perfume, making Papyrus, and linen. And all this is just some of what you and your kids will see while on a boat trip inside. There are five museums in the village, a replica of king Tut’s tomb, and a replica of Karnak temples.
Also in the village, there is a nice shopping area with all the Egyptian goods like papyrus, perfumes, leather products, Egyptian key chains, necklaces, rings, and book notes for kids, Egyptian tattoos, and your kids can have their names written in hieroglyphic. There is also a nice open-air coffee shop and a garden with two restaurants, one for fast food, and another for meals.
