We are studying Egypt with our Story of the World Curriculum and I came up with this fun idea for an activity. Brian thought it was fun.. but kinda gruesome.
First we went the dollar store to buy our "victim". We chose a nice little walrus who we loved and petted before we ripped his guts out.
Then we made an incision at the nose, and took all the "brain" stuffing out through the nose.
Chloe really dug this part.
Then we used some of Daddy's travel sized shampoo bottles as our canocopic jars.
Emma labled the jars for us.
We cut up an old crib sheet to make the mummy wrappings and tied them.
John wanted to mummify the dog too. Run Puppy, RuN!!!!!!
