  • Tear off strips of masking tape and lay them in a random criss-cross pattern all over the body of the mummy. If you have a hard time seeing the mummy outline once your tape is on, you can retrace your mummy pattern on top of the tape.

If you are planning to make these in a big group or for a class art project, you can do a little prep work beforehand that will help this project run even smoother:
  • Draw all the bodies on the black paper so they won't even need a pattern or white pencil.
  • Wrap masking tape around craft sticks and stick two eyes onto each stick with glue dots.
With this preparation, each student was given a piece of black paper + the printables, and a craft stick. All they needed from their desks were their own scissors, crayons, and glue.
The kids taped the craft stick to the back of their mummies and made a cute puppet!
