This craft uses some paint and simple supplies to make an cute M is for Mouse . It’s always a lot of fun to for the kids to see how their hand print can turn into something else. For this craft, we make a grey handprint for the mouse’s head, and then use a paintbrush with grey, black, and white paint to make the ears and face. It’s a simple and hands-on way to learn about the letter M!

First, print the printable to go along with this craft. We like to practice the letter on the first page before making our handprint, and we do the next page while the handprint is drying.

Start by painting the entire palm and fingers with grey paint. This will be the mouse’s head.

Now it’s time to make the M is for Mouse  handprint. Place the hand in the center of the page, with fingertips pointing downwards. The easiest way to do this is by turning the page upside down and then making the handprint.

After the handprint dries, it’s time to make the rest of the mouse’s head and face. Start by making a two grey semi-circle ears with a white fingerprint in the bottom center of each one. Also make two white fingerprints for the eyes. Next, use black paint to make black dots in the center of each eye, one big black dot for the nose, and lines for the whiskers.
