stART: Skeleton Meets Mummy


This super cute Halloween story, that for some reason reminds me of “Little Red Riding Hood,” for no good reason was a lot of fun to read.

Skeleton is sent by his Mom to take a basket to his grandma (the part that reminds me of Riding Hood), and as he goes through the forest is scared by a sound behind him.

A mummy is chasing him, and finally catches him.  Skeleton overcomes his fear by………..  If you want to know, then read the book.

I had this brilliant idea of a craft, which of course my kids wanted to do a completely different craft, so we did several of these.  With only one kid actually completing my project as envisioned.

Supplies: person cut out (you could trace a gingerbread cookie cutter, do a paper doll chain, however), strips of white paper, scissors glue


1.  Glue the strips of paper onto your mummy.

If wanted, draw a face on said mummy.  Batman insisted it’s necessary, “see the book, it has a face Mommy.”


2.  Trim the extra paper away, so it’s a person shape again.


As an alternative you could do Superman’s method.  Just draw lots of lines on it, so it looks like a mummy.


Then glue your mummy on the Halloween Mural of AWESOMENESS.


And stand back and stare in awe at the wonderfulness of your mural.

Now for more ideas head on over to A Mommy’s Adventures.
