Here is a little tutorial showing how this passel of mice and company were created.
stones of all shapes and sizes
bits of fabric and paper
Step 1: Collect stones in a bucket. Try to find different shapes since that will ensure that there are lots of options later on. The smoother the stone, the better.
Step 2: Dump the stones into the sink, fill the sink with water, and have someone who loves to play in water scrub each one with a brush. Just rinsing the stones is also perfectly fine too. Once all of the stones are rinsed, set them out in the sun to dry.
Step 3: Using a fabric pencil, draw a mouse shape on your favorite gray or tan fabric and cut it out.
Step 4: Find a stone that seems to work well with your shape, and coat the stone with Mod Podge. Then, put the shape on the stone and put another layer of Mod Podge over it. Use your fingers to rearrange the shape, so that it is positioned just right on the stone.
Step 5: Use a hole punch with a super small hole to punch out a little eye and glue it on the mouse. Then, cut out a tail and glue that on as well. Be sure that the entire mouse has a layer of Mod Podge over it.
Step 6: Let the mouse dry.
Step 7: Make some mouse friends, food, and play things for your new friend.
