Here's what you need to make these spooooky mummy's out of empty toilet paper tubes. It is easy and kids would love to help create their own.
What you'll need:
-Empty toilet paper tubes (depending on how many you want to make)
-roll of 2 inch wide gauze (2 to 3.5 feet long per mummy)
-Lets start by deciding if you want a short mummy or a tall one. If you want a taller one, you don't need to do anything to the empty toilet paper tube. If you want a short one, cut one of the tubes in half.
-Next we will be tracing the bottom of the toilet paper tube on the white paper. Each mummy will need one of these.
-After you trace it, cut out the circle and tape it to one end of the toilet paper tube.
-Then you will need to measure approximately a 2 1/2 foot strip of the gauze for the short mummy and around 3 1/2 feet for the tall one.
-After you have it measured and cut to the desired length you will tape on end of the gauze to the toilet paper tube.
-Then gently stretch and wrap the gauze around the toilet paper tube. You will want to twist the gauze every once in a while to add more demension to your little mummy.
-When you reach the end of the gauze tuck it under one of the other layers.
-Then glue the googly eyes on to your creation. And Wa-la! You have your little mummy.
You can even fill these little guys up with some Halloween goodies.
