Toilet Paper Roll Mummies Halloween Craft for Kids

As you may know, we are big fans of toilet paper roll crafts. They’re cheap and easy, and we always have a ton of those suckers stored in the craft supplies closet. Win-win! The mummies were simple to make. We tore some gauze into strips, painted the tubes black and added googly eyes. You can’t get much easier than that, but here’s the tutorial just in case you want to see it all.

2. Glue googly eyes near the top of the tube. If using school glue, give the glue a bit of time to dry before wrapping with the gauze.

3. Wrap the toilet paper tubes with strips of gauze, gluing occasionally along the length of the strip to secure it in place.
