3 Different Mummy Templates
Big Mummy Outline
First you will find the big mummy. This is a great size for crafting with small kids. They can craft directly on the printed out paper. Using this template use scissors to cut out the outline. Then trace the shape on black cardstock or construction paper with a white crayon or chalk. Then add white strips of paper to make an easy mummy.

Medium Mummy Outline
This size can work great for crafting, decorating a bulletin board, or party decorations. The medium size comes with four mummies on a sheet. This size is still big enough for plenty of easy craft projects. Plus, if you are printing them out for a whole class to craft it will require less sheets of paper. For party decorations use a hole punch on the top of each mummy then string it on a ribbon or yarn. This makes a cute and easy halloween garland.

Small Mummy Outline
The small size can also be used many ways. Use them for crafts, cupcake toppers, counting, or color matching. For color matching print the template on a few different colors of cardstock paper in 8.5×11 inch size. It can be part craft and part math class. I love when something can be used for multiple purposes. Another way to use small mummies is making mummy puppets. Just tape the template on to a popsicle stick to make a mummy puppet. Make a bunch for mummy pretend play!

Roll the marbles back and forth over the mummy template to create stripes. This will give your mummy a striped look. Kids will also love rolling the marbles.
Masking Tape Mummy
This craft is super easy and works on fine motor skills. A perfect craft for younger kids. Well all of these crafts work for young kids preschool and up. Make a cute mummy with masking tape by tracing the template on black paper. Then cut out the template. Add strips of masking tape across the mummy template horizontally. Wrap it around from the front side of the mummy to the back side of the mummy pattern. You can put the masking tape at different angles they don’t have to be placed on perfectly. If you want to make it easier on kids pre cut strips of tape and put them on parchment paper. Then kids can peal them off and add them right to the mummy. Then glue on the mummy’s eyes. Use googly eyes or make your own eyes with paper. Draw a small mouth on one of the strips of masking tape with a black marker. You also can make a mouth with paper.
