Masking Tape Mummy

Oct 10, 2022 | DIY Crafts, DIY Holiday Crafts, DIY Projects, Halloween

This is a totally improvised Halloween craft. I put duct tape on the table and my daughter rummaged through the art closet for inspiration while she played. I turned around and asked her not to waste it, inspiration came! We can make a tape mummy. We make a lot of Halloween crafts for kids, but this is our first mummy craft. You can also make ninjas using light-colored paper and dark-colored tape.

Gather your materials. You will need some black paper, masking tape, a white crayon, scissors, glue, and googly eyes.

Start by drawing the outline of a body.

Cut or rip strips of tape off the roll and stick to the edge of the table. I didn’t get a good picture of this set up because my daughter was a speed demon with putting the tape on. Older kids should be encouraged to cut their own tape.

Add the tape to the outline. If your child takes more than the 12 seconds my daughter did with this step you can talk about the different lengths of tape or dive into what mummies really are. I didn’t get into that with my 3 year old but if she was a little older I think it would have fascinated her.
