cardboard tube mummies - the gingerbread house

Yay, it’s almost October which means we can start to get excited about Halloween crafts! My Pinterest stream is full of some great ideas which I’ve been busy pinning, hoping to keep my children occupied now the weather is getting cooler.

Easy cardboard tube mummies

My 4 year old loves any craft which involves a cardboard tube. The first thing he said to me yesterday morning was something about painting tubes and turning them into cars – not what you need at 6.50am!

Equipment you will need to make cardboard tube mummies:
cardboard tubes from the recycling box
printed photos of your children’s faces
roll of bandage
glue stick and sellotape

cardboard tube mummies

Cut out a face from your photograph and glue it in place on the cardboard tube.

Wrap the bandage around the tube and the edges of the photograph, making sure you keep the eyes and part of the face clear.

Secure the end of the bandage in place with sellotape and you have created your very own Egyptian mummies, a great Halloween decoration.
