Halloween Mummy Activity For Kids: What's In My Mummy? Matching Body Parts
Step 1: Make your body parts
Using a high quality felt like this pack, cut out the body parts you'd like.
TIP: for younger kids, keep it simple; see mine below! For older kids, you could layer these on a bit more (think lungs, with a rib cage on top). If you layer the parts on you may need to get some velcro fastener stickies to help it stick a little better (see video).
You could also cut out the same body part in a few different colors and work on color theory with your child. For example, cut a green heart, red heart, and pink heart and ask your child to pass you the specific color.
Step 2: Play!
Yep, it's really that simple!
The felt naturally sticks to the Dollar Tree mummy form. I set the mummy up (see photo above) and then brought my toddler over. She immediately took the body parts off and I just worked with her on the names and colors (see video).
“What's In My Mummy?” Matching Body Parts Game in action:
As you may have seen in the video, my toddler was OBSESSED with this. She has literally played with it every day for over a week. Brings it around the house with her and just thinks it's the best thing EVER!
She has so much fun dressing the mummy up, and see what else will stick to it that I can't recommend this activity enough right now. It's SO simple and SO low mess!
When she goes down for a nap, I just reset it by tapping the mummy back up to the wall, and putting the felt body parts on a side table next to it (see video)
How long to set up and clean up:
Altogether this took about 5 minutes to set up and takes 2 seconds to clean up.
