What you will need:
1 flat white sheet ($4.47)
White face make up (already had)
Black eyeshadow (already had)
1 pair of white tights ($1.97)
Step 2: Boil a pot of water and a couple of tea bags and then soak the strips in the pot
Step 3. Rinse the strips and then dab black paint in various locations of the strips
Step 4: Place in a pillow case (tied tightly with a ribbon) in the dryer
Step 5: Take the strips from the dryer and tie about 4 to 5 together, repeat 4 times. You should have some extra strips left over which will come in handy later
Step 6: Dress the child in the tights (put the tights over his/her shoes) and the white shirt. Make sure you tuck the shirt into the tights, this will really help you when your lil mummy has to potty.
Step 7: Start wrapping the child starting at his/her legs.
Step 8: Apply the white face make up and then go around the eyes and cheek bones with some black eyeshadow.
Step 9: Stand back and enjoy your master piece!!
My son won 1st place out of over 30 children at a costume party this past weekend. I am a very proud parent!!
Oh and side note: Wednesday at school they get to dress up and since the mummy costume is to hard to go to the potty in without help from me, Caleb will be a (drum roll please) Fireman! So really at the end of the day we both got our ways...
