This was a total spur of the moment Halloween craft . I had the masking tape out on the table and my daughter was playing with it while I was rummaging through the art closet trying to get inspired. I turned around to ask her not to waste it and inspiration struck! We can make a masking tape mummy. We’ve made a ton of Halloween crafts for kids but this is our first mummy craft. You could totally use lighter paper and dark tape to make a ninja too.
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.
