Halloween Fun – Where’s My Mummy?
Has anyone read Carolyn Crimi’s book “Where’s My Mummy?” Cutest story ever!!!!!
After seeing this, a Halloween game idea popped into my head. Using Tricia’s original Scavenger hunt characters and adding my creations of the the owl and the Little Mummy and Mommy Mummy, I came up with this new Halloween game idea.
(There are 23 individual cards in this game, however, you can make additional copies if you are using for a classroom setting.)
I can’t wait to print it and play it with my children!!!! If you can get a copy of the book and read it to your children before you play the game, it brings it all together. However, it’s not a requirement. Let me know how it went with your family, classroom, or friends. I would LOVE to know if they enjoyed playing it.
Where’s My Mummy Game Instructions
Little Mummy wanted to play one more game of Hide and Seek before he went to bed. While he counted, his Mummy hid. However, she hid so well Little Mummy couldn’t find her. He needs your help in this fun game of Hide and Seek.
Use one less card then there are players in the game. Be sure the “Mummy” card is one of them.
Shuffle the cards and deal one card out to each person except for one. The one without the card will hide the “Mummy” card for the person who is it. The one who is dealt the “Mummy” card is considered Little Mummy. Be sure to take turns on who doesn’t get a card dealt to them.
Little Mummy must leave the room leaving his “Mummy” card behind for the person who doesn’t have a card to hide. Everyone hides their card someplace in the room. Little Mummy comes back into the room and starts to look for his “Mummy“. Using the hot and cold method, everyone can call out to Little Mummy if he is hot or cold in finding his Mummy. The players who hid their card must try to trick Little Mummy into finding their card instead of finding his “Mummy”. If they succeed in making Little Mummy find it, they get a treat from the candy bowl. Once their card is found they can try and lead Little Mummy to his “Mummy” before the he locates anymore of the other players cards.
The trick of the game for Little Mummy is trying to decide who is telling the truth and who is playing a trick on him! Once Little Mummy finds his “Mummy“, he gets a treat and the game starts over again. This is a great game for a party, classroom party, or family Halloween fun!
