Halloween is coming up so you know what that means – spooky craft season! This time of year is truly one of my favorites. Thanksgiving and Christmas are both right around the corner, colder weather is here to stay, and pumpkin spice is a staple in my diet once again. So what better way to celebrate this wonderful time of the year than with some fun crafts with your little ones? This DIY paper plate lacing mummy is a great way to get ready for Halloween while keeping your kids busy! Here’s how to get started:
- sturdy, white paper plate
- white yarn
- extra large googly eyes
- black marker
- single hole punch
- First, begin by making your mummy’s face. Glue extra large googly eyes in place and draw on a mouth with the marker. This doesn’t have to be precise as it will be covered over with the yarn.
Then, punch holes around the edge of the paper plate. We made ours about every half an inch.
To start, cut a long piece of yarn then thread it up through the top holes from the back then back through the corresponding top holes and tie it off in a knot. At that point, begin lacing. Up and through and across and however you want until your mummy is completely bandaged!
When you run out of a string of yarn, simply tie or tape it off in the back and tie in a new piece.
This is a great hand/eye coordination activity for the younger set and it’s just a fun mummy craft for Halloween for the older on
