Activities for "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie"

In my preschool classes, we have been reading the book," If You Give A Mouse A Cookie."

I have been feeling under the weather for the last week or so, that is why there is not step by step instructions. But I think most activities are self explanatory.

First, we made mouse ears to wear.

Then we made mouse puppets with white paper bags.
This is a students mouse, that is why the eye is not in the normal place.

We also painted triangles and decorated the triangles to be mice.
Instead of triangles, you can turn the letter "M" into a mouse.
You could also paint the letter"C" for cookie. Paint the "C" a light brown and add dark brown circles for chocolate chips.

I also made some fake cookies out of construction paper. Hid them around the room and had the kids pretend they were mice trying to find the cookies.
Tomorrow for snack, we are going to decorate sugar cookies.

We are very much into puppets at our house- the mouse one (with the eye incorrectly placed) is too fun!
