Archaeology Party: Mummy Wrap Activity

Supplies
Sheet strips (3” wide) or toilet paper, adult supervision

Directions
1. Take turns being the “mummy.”
2. Using separate strips, wrap each toe and finger, then each hand and foot, then each arm and leg. Be careful not to wrap too tightly!
3. Wrap the legs together and wrap the arms to the sides of the body or crossed on the chest.

Pump Drill

4. Finish with a separate wrap only for the head. Leave your mummy room to breathe!
5. Unwrap and start all over!

Tips for Caregivers
Wrap candy, beads or party favors in the layers to simulate amulets.
