The Mouse and the Motorcycle is an amazing book written by Beverly Cleary. Our boys loved reading this book and have completed many activities and printables that go well alongside it. Your kids will love completing these The Mouse and the Motorcycle Activities and Printables as they read and study the book.
The Mouse and the Motorcycle Activities
After reading the book, we completed a couple of mouse activities to go with this book. Below is a list of a few activities which are then followed by some printables that we completed as we studied this book.
Mouse Finger Puppet
Using a semi-circle of pink paper, we rolled it up to make a cone shape before taping the end in place.
Then we drew on the eyes with a black marker before using a pipe cleaner, we pushed one end through the mouse and out of its nose. We taped the other end of the pipe cleaner in place.
For the eyes we folded a rectangle piece of pink paper in half and then cut out the ear shape as in the picture below.
Then we unfolded it and glued it in place.
Plastic Egg Mouse
The second activity we completed was a mouse using a small plastic egg.
For this we pushed a pipe cleaner through the hole in the bottom of the egg. Then we bent the pipe cleaner so that it would stay in place. We drew on the faces with a black marker and then we did the ears.
We started the ears the same as above. Then we opened the ears up and glued them down horizontally as in the picture below.
Then we tried a couple of motorcycle activities.
For the first one, the boys rolled small die cast motorcycles through paint and then onto a long sheet of paper. This paper can then be used as wrapping paper or your could frame it.
The boys used one motorcycle per colour, as they didn’t want to mix the colours.
The end result looked great!!
So great, we decided to cut an M out from it.
Then we tried to draw Footprint Motorcycles that we saw on Hand Print and Foot Print Art.
The boys completed a footprint motorcycle each.
