Embalming a Mummy the Egyptian Way

A fabulous birthday party for a good friend and crazy-creative fun themed activities that included taking turns embalming a mummy like the ancient Egyptians did. This photo shows the girls in costume trying to remove the brain through the nostrils; earlier, they removed its internal organs. The whole process was hilariously disgusting - even knowing that the "intestines" were really sausage casings filled with chocolate pudding surprisingly didn't make them look any less totally disgusting. (The "brain" was cantaloupe.  Heart was a peeled tomato.  I think a beet slice was used for a kidney.)   Fun celebration and pretty unforgettable, too!
