Supplies Needed For This Halloween Mummy Craft
You’ll need just a handful of supplies to get started with this Halloween inspired mummy line study project. Here they are!
- Construction Paper (or cardstock)
- Fine Tip Black Marker
- Crayons, Markers or Colored Pencils
Directions for the Halloween Mummy Line Study Art Project
Got all your supplies ready? Here’s what you need to do to get started. First, use the download link to download and print the printable on a sheet of paper. It is best to use construction paper, but if you don’t have that, normal paper works just fine.
Next, hand over the fine tip marker to your little one, and ask him to fill out the different sections of the mummy with straight lines. This can be a time consuming yet surprisingly satisfying process, and can strengthen your toddler’s fine motor skills too.
Next, it is time to breathe in some life into the picture with colors. While you can always stick to the colors that I’ve followed here, it can also be a great idea to give your little one a free reign and allow him to pick the colors he wants to.
And that’s it. You’re done. Easy peasy right?

For all those times when you are home bound and are not sure how to utilize your toddler’s time in the most constructive way possible, art and craft activities can be a lifesaver. That’s because they are not just fun, but are also the perfect way to reduce your little one’s screen time, and for you to teach your toddler about new ideas and concepts and improve his creativity too.
You can team up this art project with a good book, or get him familiar with Halloween and its different traditions.
