After you read If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, help young readers grow their imaginations and develop their fine motor skills by making this mouse headband.

What you’ll need:

  • Pink and brown construction paper

  • Crayons or markers

  • Glue

  • Tape

Directions:

  1. For the band, help your little ones cut out a strip of brown paper about 2 inches thick and long enough to wrap around their forehead. Leave enough extra length to tape the ends together.

  2. For the outside of the ears, fold a piece of brown paper in half and cut out a set of circles (a helpful idea is to find a large cup to trace around).

  3. Using pink paper, cut out another set of smaller circles for the inside of the ears and a triangle for the nose.

  4. Glue the smaller pink circles inside each of the larger brown circles to make the ears.

  5. Put the bottom edge of each ear up against the strip of paper and tape them in place.

  6. Once the ears are attached, use marker or crayon to draw eyes, whiskers, and a mouth.

  7. Lastly, tape the ends of the strip together to fit snugly around each child’s forehead.
