String Mummy Halloween Art for Kids
This is a great activity for the kids to do because it’s one that they can complete on their own. A lot of times, crafting can get overly complicated – and who has time for that?
Using string to make art is great for teaching the kids that art can come in all different shapes and forms. Yes, you can draw and paint with art, but string and other objects are beautiful and lovely as well.

Is Yarn a Good Craft Material?
It is. Yarn is not only pliable, but it can hold its shape as well. That means that the kids will work on their fine motor skills with wrapping, tying, and gluing and learn all the various ways that they can use yarn!
Tips for making a String Mummy Craft
The biggest tip for making this Halloween craft is that the kids need to be sure to have the yarn wrapped tightly so that it doesn’t fall apart. This is the best way to keep that mummy looking like a mummy without any issue!
Wrapping the yarn around the googly eyes is also important as it helps to hold them in place. Even though you are gluing them, the yarn is just securing them as well. No one wants those google eyes to fall off!
Even though mummies are typically white in color, let the kids have fun and use different colors of yarn as well!

Why is my yarn not staying put?
Make sure that the kids are wrapping it tight enough! It doesn’t need to be so tight that it’s causing the paper to wrinkle, but it does need to be tight enough that it holds in place. If all else fails, add some tape and glue to hold it.
