Some Christmas Mice

Today we heard four stories about mice at Christmastime. We began with If You Take A Mouse to the Movies, a funny story about a mouse who moves from one activity to another, and another, and another! Together at Christmas is a story of ten little mice, out in the cold at Christmastime, and an important lesson they learn about friendship. The Gingerbread Mouse was about a mouse who finds a new home in the house of some neighbors. And The Tale of the Christmas Mouse is about a helpful little critter who makes Santa's job a little easier.

Here's our craft - Christmas mice! As you can see, there was a lot of choice involved regarding mice features. But all have a candy cane tail! We also made pipe cleaner candy canes - just in case the real candy cane somehow got eaten!
We sang "Where is Santa" to the tune of "Are You Sleeping?":
Where is Santa? Where is Santa? (hands behind back)
Here I am! Here I am! (arms out in front making a belly shape!)
Merry, Merry Christmas!
Merry, Merry, Christmas! (keep arms up through the rest of the song!)
Ho - Ho - Ho!, Ho - Ho - Ho!
And we sang "Jingle Bells" - with jingle bells! Click below to listen!
