Popsicle Stick Mummies

A mummy for your Mummy's Boy or Girl
 You will need:
  • Popsicle sticks (two for each mummy you make)
  • Wooden craft spoons (Popsicle sticks with rounded ends)
  • Glue gun
  • Gauze (Our strips were 2 yards in length and 1 inch wide.)
  • Googly eyes
  • Wire cutters
How to:
  1. Use the cutters to snap two Popsicle sticks, not quite in half. (Leave one side slightly larger than the other.) The longer pieces will be the legs.
  2. Glue the arms and the legs to a wooden craft spoon to make a person. Let dry.
    One arm and one leg make up one stick.
  4. Wrap gauze around sticks. Use a dab of glue to hold last piece in place.
  5. Add googly eyes.
We did this craft at this year's Halloween party and it was a little more complicated (for 3 year olds) than I thought it would be. The adults had to lend a hand wrapping the gauze. However, it was also a favorite. One of our crafters now sleeps with his mummy and Elliott says it was his favorite craft from the party. They are awfully cute. So, although this craft is actually very easy, be prepared to jump in with a helping hand, and don't "bury" this craft. Haha, get it?

Elliott's Evaluation:
This was my favorite craft from our party. (Me: Even though Mummy (sorry, I'm on a roll...of gauze) had to help a lot?) Yes. I like my mummy so much. He's sooo cute. I love him.
