Activities, Story & Craft Activities

M is for Mouse – Craft and Story Activity

I have to thank our local Children’s Museum for our story and craft idea yesterday!

M is for Mouse - Craft & Story Activity from Jaime's Book Corner

We made a mouse out of the Letter M. How cute, right?

I immediately thought of our fun book There’s a mouse about the house! and knew Ava and I would read it before nap time at home.

This was our first read-through and it really is a fun book! It’s interactive, allowing children to move the mouse through the book along with the story of the mouse trying to find some dinner. Ava is almost 2 years old, so I did help her with the mouse some, but she certainly understood the concept.

As is the case with many of our Usborne & Kane Miller books, I imagine you won’t be too surprised to find that There’s a mouse about the house! has some educational perks too. Moving the mouse teaches fine motor skills, the dotted lines to follow help encourage early writing skills, and the mouse always moves from left to reach, an important thing to learn with early reading skills. This book also helps children learn to turn one page at a time.  If they turn a few pages at once, the mouse won’t be there.

Here’s our mouse that we brought home. Ava is starting to get better with crafts that involve glue, but any tips for teaching kids to use scissors? That’s definitely new for us!
