At the Party:

Follow these steps to create a Valentine's mouse:
  1. Cut a heart out of red construction paper for the mouse's body.
  2. Crease the heart by folding it in half, and then unfold it.
  3. Glue a piece of yarn or pipe cleaner into the fold so that it hangs out about 3 inches, forming the mouse's tail.

  4. Fold the heart in half again, and glue it shut.
  5. Cut out two hearts from red construction paper, about one-fourth the size of the body.
  6. Cut out two hearts from pink construction paper, about half the size of the red hearts in step 5.

  7. Glue the pink hearts from step 6 onto the red hearts from step 5, and fold them in half, pink side facing outward. These will be the mouse's ears.
  8. Fit the ears over the body, and glue them to the body.
  9. If desired, glue wiggle eyes to the body, or have the children add eyes with a marker.
