Today I have a fun Mummy Craft for Preschool or Kindergarten!! Mummies are spooky and fun. Today we have a craft and activity to go along with the book …this craft goes great with our There was an Old lady Craft and printables OR it goes great with the book “There was an old mummy who swallowed a spider“. My children absolutely LOVE to read “There was an old…” books. The books a great for helping teach sequencing (and memory skills!). So…without much ado, here is the book that works well with this craft!
Mummy Craft for Preschool
Paper lunch sack
Black craft paint
White miniature duck tape roll
1. Lay out a piece of newspaper or scrap paper before you get started.
2. Paint your paper bag black and let dry (the side with the bottom flap).
3. Turn the bag upside down and glue the eyes onto the center of the top flap of the bag.
4. Cut about 11 pieces of tape and stick to the black bag in a criss cross pattern to look like a mummy.
You have your fun, easy mummy craft for preschool or kindergarten!
Now, you can also put a whole in the bag and have the mummy swallow a spider, rat, crow, bone, brew, witch, ghost and….you….like in the “There was an Old Mummy Who swallowed a spider” book.

Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips (Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading, Mrs. Karle’s Reading Patch, and Mrs. Karle’s Handwriting Patch). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created “sunshine moments” to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read.
Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 8 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch. With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles.
The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading. Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets and Parents Magazine online. Over the last 8 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.
