3 cardboard tubes
Thin cardboard (from a cereal or cracker box)
Grey craft paint
How to make your Three Blind Mice craft
Begin by painting all three of your cardboard tubes with your grey craft paint. Also, paint a portion of your thin cardboard with the same grey paint.
Let each of these dry.
Once your paint is dry, trace a circle to make your ears. You’ll need six ears, two for each of your mice.
I used a half of a plastic Easter egg and found it was just the right size.
Cut out each of your ears.
Cut a small on each side of the top of your cardboard tube. Slide an ear into each slit.
I found that this held securely, but if that’s not the case for you, add a bit of glue to secure your ears.
Next, cut (or tear) a strip of fabric for a blindfold. You’ll need three strips total. We used three different fabric scraps, but they can also all be the same fabric.
Add a stripe of glue across the area where your mouse’s eyes would be to secure your fabric on the cardboard tube. Attach your strip and then tie the strip in back.
Use your black marker to add a nose peeking out from under your blindfold and also add your whiskers.
Finally, cut a length of yarn for your tail and attach it to the bottom back of your tube with glue. Let everything dry.
Now your Three Blind Mice craft is finished! Aren’t they cute? They make the perfect pretend play toy or a simple prop when you’re singing the nursery rhyme.
