Mummy crafts are great for Halloween and using micropore makes it really easy for you to create a craft that really looks the part. You can wrap your mummy is as much or as little tape as you like depending on how much of the bag you want to be seen.
I love crafts that last can be used once you’ve finished making them and I think puppets are perfect for inspiring a bit of creativity.
You could match this craft up with our paper bag witch and paper bag ghost crafts that I’ve linked to further down in this post and put them together to make your own little Halloween puppet show.
Paper bag mummy materials:
Googly eyes / scrap paper and pen
Paper Bag Mummy Puppet:
This DIY puppet is really easy to make, start by tearing your micropore into strips and then placing it across the ‘body’ of your paper bag.
I get my paper bags from Morrissons (ahem, totally the cookies from the bakery) but if you’re doing this with more than one child or don’t fancy eating your own weight in baked goods then you can buy them in multipacks here.
Once you’re happy that your mummy is properly wrapped cut out two black circles from your card as well as a mouth. I have a tendency towards doing happy faces but obviously go with what pleases you- maybe you could use white card and make them screaming drawing in a red tongue!
Glue the mouth and the eyes on and then add googly eyes on top of your black circles – I think the black background helps them stand out a bit more and helps them look a bit more scary (or knackered?!).
If you don’t want to use googly eyes just draw cut some circles out of white paper or card and draw a black dot on them to make some eyes and glue these on instead.
PVA is often better for keeping things stuck on longer but glue sticks tend to stick instantly and are therefore a bit better if your kids want to play with their puppet straight away.
