Planning your kid’s birthday or Halloween party can be quite tasking, most especially when it comes to creating activities to keep your guest engaged and entertained.
The Mummy Wrap is one of such games that can guarantee you the much-needed fun.
This game is suitable for children of all ages, and adults too can take part in the fun. Also, you can play at any time of the year provided you have all the necessary requirements handy.
Basically, players take turns to wrap a selected person up like a mummy. This person will hold on to one end of the toilet paper in his/her hand, and the other team starts the wrapping when the music starts.
You can play some cool Halloween songs such as “Monster Mash” to lighten up the mood on the play floor and also serve as the timer for the game. Wrapping must stop once the music is turned off.
Equip yourself with some inexpensive supply of loo rolls or toilet paper to start playing the game. Each contestant gets a roll per round.
To make the game somewhat challenging for the older kids, the light can be turned off while the music is on. That way, they get to catch all the laughter.
The goal is to be the first team to cover up a team member in 360-degree spins, like a “Mummy” with toilet paper without shredding it.
The team with the best-wrapped mummy wins the game.
The Mummy Wrap is straightforward to play. It can be played by at least 4 players or up to 10 teams, each with 1 or 2 rolls.
Apart from the rolls, you might also want to consider fitting the theme with streamers for typical Halloween colors, in case you want to play the game at a Halloween party.
You will need a large supply of rolls that are cheap and not too fancy. The more the sheets that come with the roll, the better for the game.
Setting Up Your Game
This game is pretty easy to set up but could use some parental guidance if available. The first step is to divide the contestants into at least two teams. Allocate an equal amount of paper to all the teams and have a timer ready.
Starting the Mummy Wrap Game
Before starting the music, ensure you agree on how much time each team will have to cover up their Mummies. The steps are as follows:
- Decide one player from each team to be chosen as the “Mummy” while the other team members will be the “Mummy” wrappers. The player to be wrapped stands upright with their arms firmly placed to their sides.
- The “Mummy” wrappers collect the roll and wait for the host to start the timer. The teams immediately begin to wrap up their “Mummy” until the roll is exhausted, and within the duration of time specified from the start of the game.
- Once the time is up, players should stop wrapping. The first team to cover up their “Mummy” wins the round. You can also have rounds of Mummy Wrap, and the winners of each round compete for the finals.
Blindfolded Mummy Wrap
- It involves two players per team, which are the wrapper and the “Mummy”. More than one teams can actually play at a go.
- The player wrapping the Mummy will be blindfolded and quite close to the “Mummy”. The wrapper picks from the two rolls of toilet paper placed between the Mummies legs and waits for the host to start the game.
- The wrapper begins by wrapping the “Mummy” from head to toe. He is free to grab the second roll when there is a need for it.
- The team that is first to come up with a fully covered “Mummy” wins.
One-Armed Mummy Wrap Game
- This requires 3 to 4 players to play per team.
- Contestants from each team can only use one hand to help in wrapping the “Mummy” while the unused hand remains in their pocket. Other players work together to wrap the Mummy using only one hand.
- The team that wraps the “Mummy” first from head to toe wins the game.
