Mummy Wrap

Mummy Wrap
Monster Party Activity
Best for: Ages 3 to 5

The kids will get wrapped up in this fun ‘mummified’ activity.

You’ll Need:

  • 1 roll of white crepe paper (streamers) for each child
  • Music source
  • Fun dance song, such as the Monster Mash

How to Make:

  1. Divide the group into teams of 2–4 kids (have one adult per team to help the kids).
  2. Provide each group with a roll of crepe paper.
  3. Have each group decide who is going to be the first mummy.
  4. When the music starts, the rest of the group will begin using the crepe paper to wrap the child up like a mummy.
  5. After approximately one minute, turn off the music. The mummy wrapping must stop.
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until each child has been ‘mummified.’
  7. Turn the music back on and have the children show off their best mummy moves with a mummy dance party.

Good to Know:

  • Once the kids have taken off their crepe paper and de-mummified themselves, keep the paper to use as stuffing for crafts, mailing parcels, animal bedding, etc.
  • You can substitute toilet paper for crepe paper but it is a bit more delicate to work with.
