I have had these little squeakers ready to go for many, many months--except for the mama mouse. Before some quick adjustments tonight, she looked sort of like a gray, long-tailed dog. She only had one ear, and it was the wrong shape. So I trimmed off her nose, peeled off that puppy ear, shortened her tail, made her nose pink, added a smile, and put two mouse ears on. Ahhh. Much better!
Here's the mama before I fixed her--yikes!
I found a couple of songs to go along with this. I can't for the life of me figure out where I got the first one... Please let me know if I stole it from you!
To the tune of Five Little Ducks:
Five little mice went out to play
Through the fields and far away.
Mama mouse called "squeak, squeak, squeak, squeak!"
Then one little mouse played hide and seek.
Count down to zero, then...
Five little mice played hide and seek
Didn't come home when their mama squeaked.But when the big cat started to hiss,
They all ran home as quick as this (clap!)
I'd use my kitten puppet to go along with this, and I think I'll make (or borrow from another set) some items for the mice to hide behind.
The second one is from Kididdles:
Five little mice came out to play
Gathering crumbs along the way
Out came pussycat sleek and fat
Four little mice go scampering back
(continue, counting down)
