Make a big mess and have some real fun at a party making Egyptian Mummies of all the guests
Making a life-size Egyptian Mummy is such a simple game and so much fun. All you need is a couple of toilet rolls per person. Split the group into pairs and get one of each pair to make a Mummy of the other. No need to score this game, but take photos if you can so that the ‘Mummies’ can see what they looked like. . . .
Soft toilet tissue is completely porous so breathing through it is no problem, however the game works better if the head is that last thing to be covered, because then everyone can see what’s going on with the others. If you want to bring a competitive element in to the game, set a time limit and score for artistic impression and neatness. . . .
Why wait for a party, making an Egyptian Mummy out of your kids is a great 15 minute game at any time.
15 minutes This game should use about 15 minutes of your party time. Allow about 5 minutes for making each Mummy, then with swap over, scoring and clearing the torn up tissue the game will take up 1 of the 15 minute game slots in your Party Plan.

Even with all the modern technology that our children have in the way of mobile phones and console games, the kids party still holds a special place as one of the key social events in a child's annual calendar. A special treat, a chance to invite more than just one or two friends round to your house or on an outing, an opportunity to do something a bit out of the ordinary and a way of confirming friendships as you decide who to invite and who not to are all the things that a party holds in store for the average kid.
Given they only come round once a year, you have a chance to think up something memorable, although this does not mean expensive. Getting some of your friends round to blow up a hundred or two hundred balloons, filling the house with them and then having the first game as a game to see how quickly the balloons can be burst, would not be expensive, but it certainly would be fun, and it's not something that your kid and his or her friends would forget in a hurry.
