Making Egyptian Cats

We had lots of fun making our mummified cats.  First we had to make the base and shape with scrunched up paper.  Then we put plaster of paris around the mummified cats.  After that we put linen around the cats to make them look old.

We put dye over them to make them look really old.  The colours were orange, black and dark orange.  We got some clay and made the head.  It was really hard.  We had heaps of fun.  Then we had to dry brush it to make them look even older.

The next day it looked awesome!  We finished drying brushing and then made posters.  Our learning celebration was called 'Twilight at the Museum.'  We dyed our posters to make them look old and wrote in hieroglyphics.
