  1. How to Mummify a Chicken The Saga of Pharaoh Kno-Hed

  2. Join us as we explore Egypt’s mysterious mummies.

  3. Why did the Egyptians Make Mummies? • They believed in life after death • You need to have a body if you have a life

  4. First Stage Materials • 1(or more) Cornish game hen • Salt (1-25 lb. bag recommended) • 2 gallon Zip-Loc freezer bags—2 per hen • Paper towels • Hand Sanitizer

  5. Step1.1 • Cover work area with paper • Remove game hen from wrapping

  6. Step 1.2 • Prepare plastic bags by: • Place one plastic bag inside another plastic bag. Do this for each hen being mummified • Add 6 cups salt to the bag

  7. Step 1.3 • Add hen to the bag • Add salt on top of the hen • Add more salt on top of the hen

  8. Step 1.4 • Put bag away for two weeks • Wash hands • Use hand sanitizer

  9. Step 2 • After the 2 weeks, remove chicken and brush of salt. • Repeat the salting process • Let sit another 3 weeks

  10. Step 3a • Wipe salt off chicken • Rinse well and dry • Apply hand sanitizer to the chicken (and to your own hands) • Sprinkle with cloves and cinnamon, if desired • Allow to dry thoroughly

  11. Step 3b • Material needed for wrapping Mummy • White Glue • Strips of old sheeting—any color will do as it will be gilded • Water

  12. Step 3c • Dip strips of cloth into glue, which has been poured into a container • Place the strips around the chicken • Lower layers do not matter, as a final smooth layer will be applied

  13. Step 4 • Place chicken in a cool dry place • Let chicken dry a minimum of 1 week

  14. Step 5 • Take dried mummy outside and spray with gold paint. • Give at least 3 coats.

  15. 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

  16. Credits • Star: Pharaoh Kno-Hed • Directed by: • Megan Padilla-Pagan • Taylor Couret • Amari Hathaway • Marques Harvey • Emannuel Feaster • Produced by: Pat Plummer • Filmed at: Studio T-II, MHMS production studios

  17. Final notes • The gilding and bejeweling pictures are from last year. The memory card from my camera was stolen right after we did the final part this year. Never recovered. • Web sites: • http://www.mummytombs.com/mummymaking/mummychicken1.htm • http://library.thinkquest.org/J003227F/howto.html • http://www.nashua.edu/walshly/Ancient%20Civilizations/chickenmummification.htm
