Today, Ms. Louise read Tale of the Christmas Mouse by Judith Fringuello. The friendly little Christmas Mouse lives beneath the floor, helps to trim the tree, sweep the floor and opens the door when Santa comes. He help put toys in the stockings and then has a party with other mouse friends. After listening to the story the children made their own mouse ornaments using the oval die cut #39 to cut a white oval and the mini die cut #58 to cut a pink heart. The oval is folded in half (length-wise), the heart is cut in half to form the ears (from the dip at the top to the point at the bottom). The “ears” are glued to the inside of the oval, one on each side, toward the front of the oval with just the tip glued in place. A small piece of white yarn is taped at the fold on the opposite end for the tail and a loop of yarn is taped at the top of the curve to form a hanger. The oval is glued so the two sides come together. Wiggle eyes were glued on and with a nose and whiskers added with crayon, the mice were ready to hang on a tree.
