A Very Mummy Halloween

Happy Halloween!  I meant to post this much earlier, but I’ve been a bit short on time.  It turns out that Halloween time with a 4 year old is as busy and hectic as the hustle and bustle of holiday celebrations in December, so I’m only just now getting time to share these mummy ideas.  However, they are so quick and simple that you might possibly have time to use them in the remaining minutes before trick-or-treating starts.  Or file them away for another year.  Either way, I hope you enjoy.

Our daughter loves to look at old National Geographic books with her historian grandfather, and she has become quite interested in ancient Egypt.  She decided to be an Ancient Egyptian (or as she says “Regyptian”), specifically Nefertiti, for Halloween.  So I decided that the perfect theme for our Halloween crafts, favors, cards, etc. this year would be mummies to go along with her costume.  Luckily it’s easy to turn anything into a mummy.  You need gauze (I sincerely apologize to anyone shopping at Target who had an actual injury after I bought up all of the gauze on the shelves) and googley eyes.  Wrap or glue the gauze around anything and stick the googly eyes on top.  And that’s it.  Instant mummy.  Check out all of our mummy creations:

Short and sweet, but I’m in a rush… almost time to start making the mummy hot dogs for an early supper before trick-or-treating!  Fun times!
