Mummy Candle Holder Craftivity

My Speech kids and I spent this week making one last craft before Halloween - Mummy candle jars. This craft is not only super cute, but really easy and cheap to make (a little more expensive if you choose to send a candle home with it - but that part is up to you). This is also an easy activity to add a therapeutic spin to it... just keep on reading.

To make these candle holders, you will need:

To make the candle holders, follow these steps:
1. Use the brush to apply Mod Podge all around the baby food jar
2. Stick on strips of gauze one at a time, until no spots of glue are left
3. Use the hot glue gun to glue on the eyes
4. Place a candle inside and enjoy :)

To make this into a therapy activity, you can have students "earn" the strips of gauze by completing language tasks or practicing target words. I also used mummy-themed books to work on comprehension with some of my language groups before making the craft. Some great mummy-books that I have used include:

Skeleton Meets the Mummy
Where's My Mummy?
Runaway Mummy
There Was an Old Mummy Who Swallowed a Spider

Our mummies turned out adorable, and we made a whole "graveyard" with them. This is only a portion of our mummies:

This craftivity was the perfect ending to a fun-filled October. I can't wait until next year!!
