Treetop Family Mouse Craft

Introducing the Treetop Family mice! Our friendly Treetop Family teach us about nature through songs and daily activities. Enter the smart, hardworking and very athletic mice. Did you know mice are great at jumping, running, swimming and climbing? It’s true. This craft is a great way to introduce nature themes or lessons about the changing seasons, as well as learning all about mice. 

Teacher tip: This craft comes with a free printable template which makes it easy to pre-cut the pieces. This way, little hands can focus on glueing and sticking skills instead of cutting. Older students can gain skills by following their patterns, tracing and cutting.
