M is for mouse! And just for fun, you should read, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and then make a little mouse toilet paper roll craft! (Psst… that’s an Amazon affiliate link.)
The toilet paper roll mouse is very easy to make. Here’s what you will need:
- 1 toilet paper roll
- Single hole punch
- Sharpie marker
- White scrap paper
- Cereal box
First cut a toilet paper roll in half. Then, use a sharpie marker to draw a mouse head onto the back of a cereal box. It might be easier for kids to start with a pencil. For the head, draw a triangle with one of the points facing down, then add two circles to each of the other 2 points. Outline this shape with a black marker and cut out!
