Neevah was excited to make a mouse today after a big day out playing with friends and a late nap we kept this craft pretty simple so it squeezed in before dinner. Neevahs interest in mice was sparked mostly from Playschool (TV program here in Australia) where they have a mouse running around a clock to get away from the cat and the Hickory Dickory Dock rhyme. I would also like to point out that my M isn't perfect but as long as it is recognizable as the letter it is all good.
You will need
2 pieces of paper (different colours)
2 wiggly eyes
2 pipe cleaners cute in half
scrap paper (to cut ears and nose from)
marker pens / paint
1 .Cut out the ear and nose shapes
2 .Draw the letter M and let your child decorate it. Neevah choose a brown marker for her mouse and a minimalist approach to the decoration.
3 .Glue on eyes, ears and nose
4 .Cut out your letter M and glue it onto the left over piece of paper
5 .Glue on pipe cleaners for whiskers and let it dry
