Last year my daughter, who was six at the time, made these wonderful mummies. She's so proud of them and they make me smile every time I see them. They were easy enough for her to do on her own with little supervision. In fact, a little supervision might have been a good idea because she began to mummify everything around. These are the ones we've kept.
We got the idea from Hi Sugarplum and the complete project can be found here:
I used my own vases and jars from around the house, along with a couple of random ball jars I bought for a quarter each at the local thrift store. I already had a stash of googly eyes so the only expense was the gauze. I love a cheap and easy project that makes me look like I rock as a mom!
