I’m posting my latest activity for all of us kids big and small stuck at home and trying to remain creative! I call this activity costume makes the character! Simply print out the handout below and imagine what this little mouse does in its life. Then decorate it accordingly!
Is it a knight?
A cat keeper?
The possibilities are endless, of course, and I highly recommend printing out a few of the sheets to make as many jobs as you like! I’ve done this activity several times at schools in Canada, the US, Korea, and Thailand—no matter where I’ve been, kids love this story starter.
And it IS a story starter, because you can write a story about how this mouse achieved its dream job. Or, if you do multiple mice, you can write a story about how this mouse had to change its jobs throughout his life.
Here are some of the mice from the past occasions where I’ve led this activity at schools.
By the way, the one above is one of my all-time favorite mice: COFFEE MOUSE!
Have fun and, in the meantime, stay safe, stay well, and stay tuned . . .
