Make Halloween decorations

Mummy arts and crafts

Although you might not be visiting any haunted houses this Halloween, there's no reason why you and your child can't cast a spooky spell over your own home!

Have a go at making these simple, toilet roll mummies together.

You will need:

  • Cardboard toilet rolls
  • Black paint or a black colouring pen
  • Paintbrush
  • Googly eyes
  • Bandage
  • Scissors
  • Glue


Step 1

Grab as many cardboard toilet rolls as you would like

Step 2

Help your child to paint or colour the tube black, then leave it to dry for a few hours or overnight

Step 3

Ask your child to stick on the googly eyes

Step 4

Wrap the bandage around the roll and tie a knot to secure it. Use the scissors to trim any excess material.

Display your deathly decorations in your home to give your family a fright!
