Materials Needed:

How to Make Masking Tape Mummies:

  1. Draw the outline of a mummy (think Gingerbread Boy shape!) on a sheet of black paper.

2. Now let your kiddos place tape all over the person you drew. Imperfection is the key to making this cute! I even had to encourage my gal to “get crazy” with the tape because she was putting it all in the same direction.

3. Once enough tape is on your little mummy, cut him out. Again, mummies aren’t perfect so yours shouldn’t be either. Have an arm that’s longer than a leg? That’s ok! Mummies get a little distorted when they are dead that long 🙂

4. Now let your little one glue the eyes on. If they are a little uneven, even better.

You’re done! Now make more. My gal wanted to make one for each person in the family… and then for each dog… and then for the neighbors. We made lots of mummies today. 🙂
