"Mouse" Pad

Kids will enjoy making this cute mouse pad to decorate their desktops. A great study buddy that will be quiet as a mouse!

Approximate Time: About 30 minutes



  • 2 (9x12 inch) coordinating sheets of craft foam
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • craft glue
  • scrap of black felt
  • wiggly eyes
  • non-slip drawer liner


  1. Use scissors to round the corners of one short side of a 9x12 inch piece of craft foam and trim the other short side to a point. (Save the scraps to use for the ears.)

  2. Trace this shape onto a piece of nonslip drawer liner and cut it out.

  3. Create a face by tracing the pointed side of the foam body onto another sheet of craft foam. Add a curved line for the top of the face, then cut it out.

  4. Draw and cut out a curvy tail from the craft foam left from making the face.

  5. Glue the tail to the body on the back side.Glue the nonslip liner to the underside of the body, covering the end of the tail.

  6. For ears, cut out and glue two foam circles to the centers of two slightly larger foam circles, then glue the ears just under the top edge of the face.


  7. Cut out and glue on a black felt nose, add wiggly eyes (or cut out and glue on black felt eyes), and glue the face in place on the body.
