I hate rodents of any sort! But I love my son, so I told him, "Yes" when he asked me to make these little mice puppets featured in our Disney Magazine.

They were fairly simple. Can you tell that I have a little miss "I-do-myself!" in the bunch? I have to admit, this is very difficult for me to deal with. I can't help but get right in there and fix, I mean, help her with her little craft projects.

What you'll need:

Glue, scissors, pink yarn or string, black marker (for the nose), googly eyes, pink construction paper for ears, and blue, gray or brown construction paper for the body.

...and then maybe a little dose of patience if your toddler insists on gluing the eyes on by himself. :)

Love the craft. It's activities like this that they'll have fond memories of when they're older. And if I must have a mouse in the house, I prefer the googly-eyed kind too!

As much as I dislike rodents, this is a really cute craft. I had a dream two nights ago about mice in the crawl space. Then Dad had a dream that a rat was chasing him and trying to bite his feet :-(

This is our rodent week for sure.

This is a cute idea. I'm trying to plan a princess party right now, and I'm totally not into it. What do you think about making mice at a princess party? I mean Cinderella had mice friends :) It could work.
