Follow these directions and you can make a pocket that looks like a little mouse. Use this pocket to collect or give Valentine's Day treats or cards.

  • Age Guideline: 5 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 20 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Materials Needed:

Cut a large, heart out of construction paper. Fold the heart in half; the fold on the point will be where you make the mouse's nose. Staple the edges closed, but leave an opening on top if you want to use it to collect Valentine's Day cards or treats.

Draw a black spot on the point to be the mouse's nose (or you can even use a small pom-pom). Cut out small heart shapes to be the ears and glue them on. Add wiggle eyes. Use a black pen or marker to draw whiskers, and cut out a thin strip of paper to be a tail and glue it on.
