Mousie Finger Puppet
Cloth garden glove
Directions: Cut around the back of one finger on the glove. On the front side, cut slanted lines to resemble the tail of a mouse. Attach small felt circles for ears. Glue on wiggly eyes and draw whiskers with the marker. Put the mouse on your finger and use it to sing the song below:
(Tune: "The Bear
Went over the Mountain")
Hint! Adapt the color of the mouse to the color of your glove.
Adaptations: Use the puppet for a quiet transition game. Put it on your finger and say:
how quiet can you be?
Clap your hands 3 times and then pass the mouse to a child who is sitting quietly. That child then passes the mouse to a second child. The game continues as the mouse is passed to quiet friends.
