M is for Mouse Toilet Roll Craft Directions
This craft takes just a bit of prep work. Before giving the craft supplies to kids to make, cut out some of the supplies ahead of time.
- Cut out an ear shape from pink paper, then use this as a template for all the other ears you need. You will need two ears per mouse.
- Cut a pipe cleaner into thirds, and use one third per child.
- Make a little bag of supplies with the toilet paper roll, googly eyes, pom pom, ears, and a marker to keep things easy.
- On craft day, let the kids paint their toilet paper rolls.
- Once the paint is dry, glue on googly eyes.
- Draw a nose with a marker and add whiskers.
- Glue the pom pom to the base of the nose.
- Glue the pipe cleaner tail and the pink ears to the mouse’s body.
- Let the mouse dry before sending her home with the kids.
While completing this craft, have the kids think of other words that start with the letter M. There are tons of M words, and kids will love trying to think of as many as they can.

Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips (Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading, Mrs. Karle’s Reading Patch, and Mrs. Karle’s Handwriting Patch). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created “sunshine moments” to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read.
Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 8 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch. With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles.
The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading. Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets and Parents Magazine online. Over the last 8 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.
It’s a good idea. And a nice project. Thanks for sharing… I love it.
