To better understand the mummification process, the children have started mummifying bananas!

Step 1 -Clean banana with Natron (dissolved in water) 

Step 2 - Make a long cut down the left side and scoop out the lungs, intestines, stomach and liver and              place these in canopic jars (one for each organ). Heart needs to be left inside!

Step 3 - Insert a hook up the nose and pull out the brains.
Step 4  - Soak in Natron salt and leave for 40 days

We haven't quite got 40 days, but will be coming back for the next steps next watch this space!
