Paper Plate Mouse

A few weeks ago my husband gave the okay to get my oldest daughter a mouse.  She had been wanting one for a while and I think she finally broke him down.  She ended up picking a cute little grey mouse that she named Speedy.

Speedy is the new hit in the house, the girls play with him all the time, while the cats all sit and enjoy watching him in his cage for hours on end (no worries we got an all plastic cage so they can’t get him through any bars).  And since everyone is enjoying him so much, I thought it would be fun to make a paper plate mouse that looked just like him!
