Rules To Play The Mummy Game at a Halloween Party
Back when I was a kid, we used to have Halloween parties and the Mummy Game was always a hit. The rules are simple:
- Break the participants into teams of 2-4 players each.
- Each team is given one roll of toilet paper.
- Put 2 minutes on the clock (you can make this longer for younger kids).
- When the timer starts, each team uses the toilet paper roll and wraps the toilet paper around a willing participant, turning them into a mummy as comprehensively as they can covering the entire body.
- When the timer goes off, the “judge” determines which team covered their “mummy” the most comprehensively or if you want to have the teams all vote, that works great too.
Variation for Bridal Shower Game
I’ve seen this particular activity be played at bridal showers too, though the goal is to make a toilet paper wedding dress instead. And the winner isn’t the one who covered the body the most, but the most beautifully.
Oh, and you need more than 2 minutes!
Making a Mummy at Home
If you do not have an upcoming Halloween party for this Halloween game, you can still do this as a Halloween activity at home:
- When I told my son we were going to play with a roll of toilet paper, he looked at me as if I was handing him the forbidden fruit! I told him to stand still with his arms out and then, I slowly and methodically wrapped his arms, torso, and head with the toilet paper (we never made it to the legs).
- It was hard for him to stand still due to all the giggling. Because of the fragility of the toilet paper, it would often break, but we would just tuck it back in and continue wrapping.
- The baby didn’t really appreciate our attempt to make her into a mummy “ she would rather tear the toilet paper to shreds instead.
- Make sure your mummies have an opportunity to see themselves in the mirror before they break out of their bandages!
