Here’s a fun way to set the scene on Christmas morning – imagine the kids creeping into the living room and seeing their presents being carted off by some mischievous mice!
They’re also great for birthdays, or any other present giving occasion, so bookmark this one for later if you don’t have time over the festive season.
I’ve tried to make them as easy as possible to make, there’s printable artwork for the mice and a template for the ‘tricky’ stand, but if that’s still too much effort, go for the ‘easy peasy’ stand made from a squashed toilet roll! You’ll find the download button underneath the instructions.
An even quicker cheat courtesy of Julie: simply prop the present on a small block of wood, and stick the mice around the side of the present – perfect if you don’t want to reuse the mice and you can’t see under the present.
1) Colour version of mice – just print and cut out.
2) Black and white mice – have fun colouring them in first.
3) Template for stand – print it out and trace around it.
4) Collectable instructions – stick them on the fridge!
