It's the day before our family event on Ancient Egypt, Wrapped Up! Visitors to the Learning Center can make their own Tater Tut mummified potato project and learn about Egyptian mummification. The potato will harden in a few weeks and the mummification materials (salt, baking soda, washing soda) can be recycled into a load of laundry. Not smelly at all, just like a well-prepared mummy should be!
