Letter M/Mouse

Today we talked about the letter M and we read Mouse Count by Ellen Stoll Walsh

To add some extra fun while reading the story I made a snake puppet, a mason jar, and some cotton balls for the mice and had the puppet pick up the "mice" as we counted.  After that we read the book again and I let my son use the snake puppet to put the mice in the jar.  You can find this idea here as well.  My snake is rather boring and I left the cotton balls basic.  You could go a few steps more and actually make mice. 
 Homeschool Share has some printables that go along with Mouse Count we used a cutting activity.
  We also made a letter M mouse.

I love your snake puppet and cotton balls in the jar idea to go along with the book. Very imaginative! And that is a very cute M mouse.
I just found your blog and can't wait to have a look around.
I would love for you to stop by and share on my recently revived Toddler Ideas Tuesday linky. I will be featuring 2-3 posts every week, linking back to the original post.
I hope to see you at Tots and Me.
Have a great evening.
