Halloween is quickly approaching so I wanted to make sure to incorporate a not-so-scary mummy book into our literacy snack rotation. For this week’s Literacy Snack Idea Baby Mummy , we’re reading “Where’s My Mummy?”, by Carolyn Crimi.
“Little Baby Mummy wants just one more game of hide-and-shriek with Big Mama Mummy before bedtime. The night is deep and dark, full of friendly creatures that click their clacky teeth and whoosh past on flippy-floppy wings. But who will comfort Little Baby Mummy if a small, scritchy-scratchy someone gives him a scare? Big Mama Mummy, of course!”
For our snack this week, we are of course making a mummy!
each student will need
a slice of sandwich bread
a spoonful of pizza sauce
a cheese stick peeled in half, 2 kids can share one stick
2 candy eyes or you could have them use black olive slices
-You’ll also need a round cookie cutter for the students to share
Each student will need to take a turn using the round cookie cutter. After they have their circle bread piece, have them spoon a light layer of the pizza sauce on the bread. Next, have them take their string cheese half, and pull as many string cheese pieces off as they can, the smaller/skinnier the better. They can lay the pieces of string cheese onto the pizza sauce in random directions creating a mummy wrap look. Last, have them place either the candy eyes or olives on as the baby mummy’s eyes.
While the students are enjoying their baby mummy snacks, I created a free printable for them to work on. They get to draw a picture and write a sentence about what their mummy does when they are scared.

I hope your students enjoy making their not so scary baby mummy snack this week!
See you next time!
