Use this game about a mummy as part of Halloween Alternative or as an introduction to the story of Lazarus.

Game Materials
Several Rolls of Toilet Paper (One or more for each team)

Game Preparation

  1. Divide the youth into teams.
  2. Each team selects one person on their team to be the mummy. you could also randomly appoint a member as the mummy by drawing straws or some other unbiased method.
  3. The objective is to wrap the team member up like a mummy using the rolls of toilet paper.
  4. You can choose the winner as (1) the team that uses up their rolls of toilet paper the quickest, (2) the best wrapped mummy, (3) the best covered mummy, (4) the neatest (5) the scariest, (6) most creative, etc


Game Rules
You may want to make game rules such as:

  1. Do NOT wrap the head or face
  2. Do not throw the rolls of toilet paper.
  3. Everyone on the team must be involved.
  4. ETC


Game Variations

  • Have the teams wrap up youth leaders instead of one of their own team members.
  • Instead of teams, split the group into pairs. You can also make the partners wrap each other before they can win so EVERYONE ends up as a mummy.
  • Set a timer and award the group that has the best mummy at the end of the time.


When many people think about mummies, they think about Halloween costumes, scary movies, and Egypt. But the Bible also has a story about someone who was wrapped up like a mummy. His name was Lazarus and his story can be found in John 11: 1-46. When Lazarus died, Jesus brought him back to life. But his sisters were not SCARED, they were very happy. Jesus had brought their brother back and he was the same person he was as before. Jesus did it so that he could show how powerful God is and also so we could know for sure that he will also bring us back to life in heaven if we believe in him and trust him.
