Bring a bit of spooky into your next crafting sessions with your kids! Today I'm showing you how to make an adorable little paper roll mummy craft.
Halloween Craft for Kids: Paper Tube Mummy
This crafty project includes quite a lot of cutting so it is really great for strengthening scissors skills.
- Paper roll
- White printer paper
- Black paper (or black paint)
- Wiggle eyes stickers
Start with wrapping the black paper around the paper roll (or coloring it black with black paint).
Cut long, thin strips of white paper, start with a few as you can always cut more later.
Take two wiggle eyes stickers (aren't these the coolest thing? we love them more than your regular googly eyes) and stick them onto the paper roll, somewhere in the upper half.
Take one strip of white paper and glue one side above the eyes and start wrapping it around the paper roll, making sure you don't cover the eyes too much. Glue the second one bellow the eyes and wrap it around the roll.
Continue by wrapping other strips of paper around the paper roll, until it is mostly covered. You can get that cool "falling apart mummy bandage" effect if you wrap them loosely, adding glue as you go.
Your mummy is nicely wrapped by now so it just needs it's pair of arms. Cut two arms out of white paper (construction paper is best, but plain print paper does the job too). Glue them to the mummy body. Let the glue dry.
Isn't he (or maybe she) nice? Ready to attend the Halloween party.
