Out of all of the Halloween crafts I’ve done recently, these masking tape mummies have been my preschooler’s favorite. They are quick and easy and take very little skill or perfection. Give this easy mummy craft a try!
Halloween Fun Alert!
Now, make some Mummy Hot Dogs for a snack and get crafting on your Masking Tape Mummy…
Materials Needed for this Mummy Craft:
How to Make Masking Tape Mummies
Draw the Outline
On a sheet of black paper, draw the outline of a mummy. If it helps you, think of drawing a gingerbread man. It doesn’t have to be perfect!
Add the Tape
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.
Cut out the Mummy
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 🙂
Add the Eyes
Now let your little one glue the eyes on. If they are a little uneven, even better.
You’re done! Now make more along with some Clementine Pumpkins for a fun crafternoon.
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. 🙂
