Step1.1

  • Cover work area with paper

  • Remove game hen from wrapping


Step 1 2

Step 1.2

    • Place one plastic bag inside another plastic bag. Do this for each hen being mummified

    • Add 6 cups salt to the bag


Step 1 3

  • Add salt on top of the hen

  • Add more salt on top of the hen

Conclusion

Conclusion

  • Now you can tell all your friends that you have made a real mummy. That will gross them out big time, and make you the envy of all the other middle school kids.

  • Do not attempt this without adult supervision, as a 25 pound bag of salt is very hard to sweep up if you drop it.

  • Wash hands often
