Next, they pretended to wash her and then sprinkled Barbie with salt to dry her out. Normally, this process would take 40 days, but we used our imaginations and proceeded after about 40 seconds.
Next we began wrapping her up in our faux linens- tissue strips. They worked out pretty well. Kaiya was able to do a lot of the wrapping on her own, although I had to help where we connected the wrapped pieces together.
And here's Barbie, all mummified in her shoebox sarcophagus. Unfortunately for her she did not remain a mummy long. The girls had her unwrapped within the hour. I suppose that the plastic will preserve her into the afterlife, even if the wrappings won't!
