HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHRISTMAS CHILD Book Launch Party Craft:  Make a Mouse!

Are you ready for the HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHRISTMAS CHILD Virtual Book Launch Party? I am and so is my storytelling companion, Mouse. That’s why we’re reminding you to join us on Instagram Live on Thursday, December 1st at 7pm Eastern (that’s TOMORROW!) to celebrate the release of HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHRISTMAS CHILD. 

Here’s the invitation:

And, now, as I promised, here is the craft!

Inspired by illustrator Gabi Murphy’s darling little mice, our party craft will be making your own mouse. These are some we made in Sunday School. Aren’t they darling? (I will introduce the craft at the party, and you can make it after the party.)

To make one, each child will need:

  • One circle cut from gray construction paper
  • Two circles cut from pink construction paper
  • One circle cut from black construction paper
  • Strips of black and gray construction paper for whiskers and tail
  • OPTIONAL:  two googley eyes
  • You will also need scissors and glue.

Here is the tutorial for the craft from The Little Crafties (and be sure to check out their YouTube channel for oodles of other great crafts:

As a closing reminder, this is the adorable craft that I’ll be presenting at the HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHRISTMAS CHILD Book Launch Party which will take place LIVE on my Instagram Page on Thursday, December 1st at 7pm eastern.  Here’s the link to that page: https://www.instagram.com/laurasassitales/. Just show up!  It’s that easy. And if you follow me there, you’ll be sure to get all the updates for this and other bookish things.  

Hope to see you soon!
