Ever since learning about mummies in sixth grade I have always had a slight obsession with them.  Mummies are so interesting (in a somewhat disgusting way).  Needless to say, I love The Mummy movies.  They satisfy my desire to see mummies without traveling to Egypt.

In the movie The Mummy, Imhotep uses sand to go wherever he wants to go.  I used this as my inspiration for a fun, sand art project with my girls.

 The Mummy Sand Art

Materials Needed:

  • Colored sand
  • Glue
  • A coloring page or picture of some sort

How to Play:

  • Gather up your materials.  (I would suggest doing this activity outside as it tends to get a little messy.)

  • Put glue on the area you want to cover with sand.

  • Sprinkle sand on the glue until the glue is covered.

  • Shake off the extra sand.  (I helped my girls pour the excess sand back into the bag it came from.)  
  • Repeat the gluing and sanding process until your picture looks the way you want it to look.

My kids think it is a good day whenever they can do art and get dirty.  They were in heaven!

While they covered their pictures with sand they would say, “Sprinkle, sprinkle, sprinkle.”
