finished paper plate mouse craft for kids

We had so much fun making this adorable paper plate mouse craft! They were easy enough for my little boy to make by himself and my toddler enjoyed making these with a grownup. I love a sweet and simple craft idea that can be adjusted so that both of my children can join in and this little craft was perfect!

Here’s what we used

  • Paper plater
  • Coloured paint and paintbrush
  • Pom Pom
  • Pipe cleaner
  • Googly eye
  • Scissors
  • Glue

How to make a paper plate Mouse

Take the paper plate and coat it in the coloured paint before putting it aside to dry.

Cut out two equal circles to make the ears, glue one to the front and one slightly further forward on the back. Glue down a Googly eye and a pom pom for the nose.

Use this length to glue the pipe cleaner tail on the inside of the paper plate. once dry your paper plate mouse is finished!
