TP Roll Mummies

October is upon us!
Time for scary ghouls and goblins
ghosties and witches
vampires and zombies
and
mummies!!

My mom just bought a book for the girls called
by Michael Rex
He writes parodies of popular children's stories
this one is a parody of The Runaway Bunny
 Since we were reading about mummies we decided we wanted to make some
 You need toilet paper rolls
and
gauze
 Then we decided to make prints with them
So I set out some black paper and white paint

When the prints were dry I cut them out
C glued googly eyes to them
Then colored over them with oil pastels to "age" them
 
Waiting for their eyes to dry
We punched two holes into each mummy and strung them up with yarn
My husband says they look like the Mini Wheats characters
 The toilet paper roll mummies became all stiff and kooky looking 
because the way the paint dried on the gauze
So C rubbed the oil pastels on them as well
and 
glued on googly eyes
I think they look really neat!
Our first Halloween decorations of the season!
 BOO!

These mummies are scaring over at these linky parties
