How to Make a Mummy & Sarcophagus | Ancient Egypt

Our first project with our Ancient Egypt unit study was “Our Amazing Mummies” by Scientific Education. My kids, age 4, 9 and 13, all enjoyed doing this project. It comes with everything you need to complete this project except for scissors and string to bind the mummy wrappings.

We decided to stain the mummy wrappings with instant coffee, add essential oils (cinnamon and clove) to the mummy and tuck in amulets into the folds of the mummy wrapping.

The painting was a little more difficult than expected and adult supervision is helpful, but overall my kids really enjoyed this project.

You can find Our Amazing Mummy at Rainbow Resource.
