What educators are saying

My student had a lot of fun making these paper mouse. We used it as a complement to a book we read. Thanks!
I love buying downloads from this site. The mice were a great success. They were so much fun and easy to make with my age group. Thank you!


This 2 page worksheet was made on request. Please note, though these paper mice are PERFECT for working with young children, they will need assistance in making and assembling these. They are not designed for self directed crafting. But they will love playing with them afterwards!
