Paper Strip Mummy ~ Halloween Craft Ideas for kids
Halloween is right around the corner. Every year it seems to sneak up on me, leaving me scrambling to get ready for the holiday. That’s what makes these little Mummies so perfect. They require little prep and basically no time to create, making these little Mummies one of our favorite Halloween Craft Ideas. Love that!
This simple craft is fun to create, while working on scissor and fine motor skills.
Our little Mummies use this adorable Gingerbread Man Template as the base. Yep you read right…Gingerbread Man. It totally worked great, plus I didn’t have to draw anything. Simple click and print. Thanks Katie from Gift of Curiosity for creating such AMAZING printables. I also love her Pumpkin Outline Template (but thats for a different project). Hop on over and check out what she is busy creating. You won’t be disappointed!
Paper Strip Mummies ~ the easiest instructions ever:
Simply print out the template, trace it onto black paper and cut it out.
Encourage your kiddos cut strips of paper to use as Mummy wrapping.
Finally…glue, glue and more glue.
Voila, you have a spooky, scary and oh so cute Mummy.
Are you planning a Halloween party? Then you might want to check out our simple DIY Mummy Cards. Instead of paper strips, we used burlap to create a simple DIY stamp. Burlap makes a perfect gauze like imprint.
Once once our little Mummies dried, I trimmed the rough edges. This step is totally not necessary, it is up to you which way your kiddos prefer their little Mummy. These little mummies are adorable either way.
How cute! The little peeking eyes make me smile.
I love the kids different style…skinny haphazard strips vs thick methodical strips of paper. Love them both!
