  1. Have your child press her thumb on a stamp pad and then press it onto paper.
  2. Show your child how to draw a mouse tail and ears on the thumbprint to complete each mouse.
  3. Do this several times to make a mouse family.
  4. Use your own thumb and perhaps one of an older or younger sibling, then compare the different sizes each makes.
