For our Chapter on Egypt in the SOTW, we wanted to make mummies. Making a chicken mummy is out of the question for us as I am a vegetarian! So we settled for the next best thing by mummifying one of the little dolls that we seem to have a million of. I let D decide which one she wanted to mummify and we started the process.
|The doll she decided upon, undressed ready for action!|
|Here is the setup that waiting for the kids that afternoon. The linen strips are from an old towel. The small plate has some wet linen to clean the body.|
|They took turns preparing the body.|
|Then we started wrapping the body, by then M had lost interest and wandered off!|
|Here is the finished mummy. I had to help tie a knot to secure the linen.|
