Celebrate the sweeter side of the holidays with this charming mouse ornament! Hang it up on a tree to display or unwrap it for a special treat, these edible critters will be a welcome addition to any household.

What You Need:

  • 2 wrapped, cone-shaped chocolate candies (Hershey's Kisses work well)
  • Pink felt
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Pink pipe cleaner
  • Thin ribbon
  • 2 googly eyes
  • Hot glue gun

What You Do:

  1. Have your child fold a piece of pink felt in half.
  2. Help her use a marker to draw a tiny mouse ear on the felt. 
  3. Let her use scissors to cut the ear out. Make sure the felt remains folded as she cuts. When she's done, she should have two, identically sized felt ears.
  4. Help your child glue the ears to the bottom of one of the chocolates.
  5. Show her how to make a small loop with the thin ribbon or string.
  6. Have her glue the looped ribbon on the same chocolate with the mouse ears.
  7. Let her glue the second piece of chocolate on top of the first piece of chocolate.
  8. Where does your child want the mouse's eyes to go? Help her use glue to attach the googly eyes.
  9. The only thing left to add is the tail. Let your child glue a short length of pink pipe cleaner to the back of the chocolate. Her mouse is ready to play—or be eaten!
