Begin to make the mummy’s eyes by gluing the pupil to the yellow outer eye. Give your mummy a crazy look by placing the pupil in different spots. Glue the finished eyes on the rectangular mummy face, one on each side of the nostrils.

Cut strips of white paper in varying lengths and widths to act as the mummy wrapping. Use a paper trimmer to speed this step up.

Glue the strips of white paper along the mummy’s face. Place them at different angles to give it a wrapped look. Be sure to leave room to see the eyes and nostrils.

Cut off any excess white paper that hangs over the sides of the mummy’s face, then glue the mummy’s ears to the back of the face.

Tips For Making This Craft Even Easier

If you want to simplify this craft for the youngest of children, we have some suggestions for you.

First, we suggest having all the pieces pre cut and ready to glue. If you want your child to work on scissors skills, have most of the pieces cut and let them make a few of the mummy wraps.

Simplify steps by leaving off the mouth and cheeks. These add a few extra details to make the mummy even more fun, but they’re definitely not neccessary.

Along the same lines, you can also forgo the mummy’s ears and just do the eyes and mummy wrap!
