I love October, it is by far my favourite month. There is so much going on, and of course there is Halloween to prepare for.  I have so many craft and activity ideas, but this simple Halloween Mummy craft has to be the best.  It is one children of all ages can be involved in.

There are so many ways to do it.  I tested a few methods out to see which one work best before I gave it to my charges to do.  With one I used watered down PVA glue and then brushed it onto loo roll.  Slightly trickier for small hands, but has a nice effect of the loo roll gathering here and there.  With another one I covered my Mummy with Pritt stick and then stuck my loo roll on.  In the end when we all did the craft, we used Pritt stick and ripped up coffee filters, as they were less likely to rip.

Make sure you follow my Halloween board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later. 

To make your own Halloween Mummy you will need:

  • Card
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Loo roll/ tissue paper/ coffee filters

Draw and cut out your Mummy.

If you are using a watered down glue, then place the torn up loo roll on the card and then using a paint brush to spread the glue onto it.  If you use Pritt stick then spread that onto the card or you may end up tearing the loo roll.

To add just a little bit more to our Mummies we dabbed some liquid watercolours to the edges of the loo roll to add a little bit of colour to them.
