Where's My Mummy?

We have been books and crafts recently.  I guess it easy this time of year.  So, after reading this (super cute) book, we made "jar mummies".  They were so simple and the kids were very excited to light them up.  We simply painted clean, glass jars with DIY Modge Podge, (1/2 water, 1/2 white glue).  Then we wrapped the jar with tulle, (I have tons of tulle) but you could easily use cheese cloth or heck, even white paper.  When they were happy with the wrapping part, they added some googly eyes.  The "mummies" dried overnight and then were ready for a candle and to sit in the window and glow.  Easy peasy and cute, cute, cute!
