A Peek at the Fun: If you’re on the hunt for Halloween games for kids to use at your next Halloween party, this unwrap the mummy game is something they will love! It’s easy for you to put together and fun for the little ones to play.
You remember the rage a few years back about the saran wrap game for Christmas time? It went viral on the internet as people planned their Christmas parties with big balls of saran wrap with hidden prizes inside. We played that game and had fun doing it (and in fact, just as a gag, Amber wrapped her mother-in-law’s Christmas presents the same way).
The thing is, this game was something we played as kids and loved, but Amber’s mom did a simpler version, perfect for little kids, using toilet paper or crepe paper.
This idea makes a perfect Halloween game for kids because you can make it look like a mummy! How fun is that?
Just be ready to listen to your little ones giggle as they play this!
Here are some more fun Halloween party ideas and games too if you are looking for more fun ideas:
But now let’s take a look at this one!
Halloween Games for Kids:
This one is super easy and you don’t need too much to get ready.
- 2-3 rolls of toilet paper (depending on how big you want it to be-the one in the picture has 2 rolls)
- Small prizes to roll into the mummy. This can be cheap toys from the dollar store or little treats, anything you think the kids would like
- Googly eyes to make it look like a mummy
How to Set Up the Game:
Gather all of your prizes.
Pick a fun prize for the center of the game (this could be a big one if you’d like). Then start wrapping toilet paper around the prize. Just keep rolling and adding prizes:
Until you get to the desired size.
Carefully wrap the eyes into the toilet paper ball. Then tuck the end of the toilet paper under another piece and you are all set!
How to Play:
Have the kids sit in a circle on the floor. Take turns rolling the die (single dice). If they roll a 1 they get to start unwrapping the mummy and they keep any prizes they get. If someone else rolls a 1, they must pass the mummy to that person. Keep playing until the mummy is entirely unwrapped.
Variations on the Game:
If you want to make this a little bit harder for older kids, here are a few variations you could try.
Option 1: Have oven mitts the players must put on before they start unwrapping the mummy. This will slow them down in the process of unwrapping.
Option 2: Make the unwrapping player use only one hand to unwrap the mummy.
Have FUN playing these Halloween games for kids!
