Toddler Fun: Valentine’s Day Sweet Mice Craft

sweet-mice-valentines-day-craft_1000

I love doing crafts with my daughter and try to make a special craft for each holiday or special occasion throughout the year.  For Valentine’s Day, I came across this cute “Sweet Mice” craft from FamilyFun magazine. Made of two Hershey’s Kisses and a heart-shaped set of ears, these tiny critters are almost too cute to eat. Toddlers will certainly love making each mouse.

Materials:

• Ear and foot template (from familyfunmag.com)
• Card stock paper
• Hershey’s kisses
• Tacky glue
• Gray yarn
• Googly eyes
• Markers

Print the ear and foot templates on cardstock and cut out the shapes. Remove the paper flags from two Hershey’s Kisses. Fold the feet where shown on the template, then use tacky glue to sandwhich the feet and ears between the Kisses. Glue a 4-inch length of gray yarn to the underside of the back kiss. Add googly eyes. Attach the mouse a cheese-shaped piece of card stock with a glue dot, then write a note.

Enjoy!

    Hello,

    I am wanting to do this craft, but having a hard time locating the template. I’ve found the craft on familyfunmag.com, but it redirects to parents magazine’s website. In turn, they direct you back to familyfunmag. Do you have a direct link to where the templates are?

    Thank you!
