- Have children draw a circle on grey construction paper, using a mayonnaise size jar lid, or a protractor.
- Draw a line on the inside of the circle, going around and around in a circle toward the center, leaving an area the width of a mouse's tail until you reach the center. Make a little "bump" in the center.Cut it out.
- Next make another circle and put Mickey mouse ears on the top half of the circle. Draw a mouse face in the top half of the circle, between the ears, and "mouse hands" down the sides of the bottom half of the circle.
- Colour and glue eyes and broomstraw whiskers on it. (Markers will work for eyes.)
- Cut a wedge of yellow cheese to glue between "Mouse hands". (Hole punch makes good swiss cheese.)
- Glue 12" string to back of mouse head between ears. Glue tail "bump" to back of mouse.
- Hang it up and the tail will curl down.
- Make several of these and put them on a hanger for a mouse mobile.
