The most important forms of entertainment
were found on the Nile River.
Some of these activities included fishing, river boat outings, boat games, swimming, and hunting hippopotamuses. Aside from hunting on the river, Egyptians hunted in the desert for foxes, hares, and hyena.
Another form of Egyptian fun is parties, in which singers, dancers, acrobats, and musicians were hired by the wealthy to perform. Some of the instruments played by the music loving Egyptians are the lute, harp, and lyre. They also played board games.
A couple examples of these games are Hounds and Jackals and Senet. The children entertained themselves with ivory animals, wooden horses, wheels, or bulls.
