Here’s what we did for Fun Friday on September 10
The book was If You Take A Mouse To School by Laura Numeroff
The Craft: Origami Mouse
What you’ll need:
- 4” square of construction paper
- Construction paper scraps
- Black fine point marking pen or crayon
How to make it:
Fold the paper square in half diagonally.
Unfold the square.
Make a kite shape. Lay the square in front of you so that it looks like a diamond. The line from the fold should point at your stomach. Fold the corner on your left to the center fold line.
Fold the corner on your right to the center fold line.
Fold the kite shape in half along the diagonal so that the flaps are inside.
Open the fold so that a tiny tent forms. The two flaps will overlap at the bottom of the tent. Glue or tape the overlapping flaps together.
Cut the scraps of paper to make ears and a tail for your mouse. Glue them on the mouse. Draw eyes with marking pen.
Idea: Vary the size of the square and create a whole family of mice.
