Halloween Mummy Birthday Party


We love Halloween at our house as it is always a good excuse for a party.  So I am always on the lookout for new and fun Halloween Snacks and Treats.


My son has an October birthday and we decided to have a friend party with a Halloween theme. At our house we only do friend birthdays on the years they turn an even age. We went with a mummy theme.


We made the guests some mummy candy bars. We made those by first taking a rectangle of black cardboard paper and glueing two google eyes on it. Then we glued them onto the candy bar (a regular sized Hershey bar).


Then we took some white streamers about 72 inches in length for each candy bar. Then we glued on end of the streamer onto the bottom of the candy bar wrapper and then simply wrap up the candy bar. When finished glue the other end of the streamer to hold it in place.


We also made some mummy cupcakes. We used white chocolate chips for the eyes and placed them on a rectangle of black icing. Then I added a small drop of black icing to make the pupils.


Then I simply frosted the cupcake with icing in strips. These are some of the simplest cupcakes to make, but they are so cute.


We wrapped up some Gatorade and made some mummy drinks for the kids too. My son wanted to play capture the flag with marshmallow guns (for more about marshmallow guns see this post). They had so much fun. Then when the game was finished, the boys came in and made their own individual mummy pizzas.  You could also include some Mummy Oreo Pops or make these fun bendable Mummy dolls.


And finally, we made some mummy pretzels to go in the take home goody bags. These are super simple too. We took a pretzel rod and dipped it into chocolate. Then when the chocolate had hardened we added some eyes.


Then we simply drizzled white chocolate over them to make the mummy covering.


I hope all of you have a safe and fun Halloween weekend! Happy Halloween!

    Neat idea! Great idea about only on even numbers….I think I might steal that, if ya dont mind.

    Also, I saw your blog on Sudio5 (worms). I have a party tonight and thats what I made – they are disgusting looking! Very lifelike. Hubs says it looks like I actually have a bowl of worms in the fridge. lol

    I had my 7y/o eat one (reluctantly), I told him – he can eat them tonight and freak out all the other people.

    Oh Amy, you have so wonderful ideas. If only I was an October birthday ;-) Your little mummies are not scary at all and they look so cute!
    As for Spain, tomorrow is a festivity in which we celebrate All Saints' Day. It's the day in which we go to the cemetery to visit our relatives. It's not a happy day at all but on the other hand there are wonderful desserts just for that day ;-)

    Adorable. I cease to be surprised, when I see a truly adorable or brilliant idea, that is has come from you. Your site is inspirational and full of unique and great ideas. I love looking around and feeling the creative juices swell inside of me. Thank you so much!

    Fabulous ideas! I’m pinning several projects. My weekly linky party–One Creative Weekend–has gone spooky this week in honor of my thirteenth party. If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit “One Creative Weekend” on OneCreativeMommy.com (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share. (You can include non-Halloween posts as well, but feel free to link up as many Halloween-themed posts as you like.) There are two categories—one for Halloween and one for everything else.

    I’d love it if you linked your mummy projects to my Mummy Roundup post.

    Hey Amy,

    I work for http://www.sheknows.com and are doing an article on cheap crafts. We came across your page (http://www.theidearoom.net/2010/10/halloween-mummy-birthday-party.html) and was wondering if we could use your photos from it, if we link back to your site?
