Materials needed:
Black construction paper
White construction paper
Popsicle sticks
Black marker

Gather materials.
Cut out a large circle to fill the center of the orange construction paper.
Glue black circle on the orange sheet of construction paper leaving enough room to write a sentence.

Under the circle write: My “Mummy” loves me!

Using the white construction paper cut out 2 small circles for the eyes of the mummy or you can use  wiggle eyes,  glue the eyes on the black circle.
Next have the children glue the Popsicle sticks to the black circle creating their mummy, making sure that they do not cover the mummy’s eyes.

Mummy Paper Plate Lacing Craft

This Mummy Paper Plate Lacing Craft is a great hand/eye coordination activity for younger children! This craft is super simple and only takes a few supplies!

Supplies needed:

Pre- activity prep:
Punch holes around the edge of the paper plate. We made ours about every half an inch.


Begin by making your mummy’s face.: Glue extra large wiggle eyes in place and draw on a mouth with the marker.  Tell your students to be creative!
Once your mummy's face has been created, cut a long piece of yarn then thread it up through the top holes from the back then back through the corresponding top holes and tie it off in a knot.
At that point, begin lacing:  up, through and across, until your mummy is completely bandaged!
When you run out of a string of yarn, simply tie it off in back and tie in a new piece.
Once completed, tie a string from the top hole and hang from the ceiling!
