Over a hundred years ago my grandfather taught my father and his 8 brothers how to make these puppet mice. It was a time when children couldn’t afford to buy toys. Instead, they used ordinary materials to make their own. These folk traditions were passed on from one generation to the next.
I was taught by my father and now I want to pass this on to you.
Once you have mastered the technique, you can have fun making one right in front of their eyes. Then give them a big shocking surprise. I’m not going to tell you what that is; watch the video and learn how to make one. You’ll need to practice and practice, but when you have mastered the technique/skill you will be able to make a mouse right in front of people’s eyes and give them a big shocking surprise. Keep a hanky in your pocket ready to go when the opportunity presents itself.
Use your mouse any way you choose. It’s fun, entertaining and will give you the opportunity to learn about a folk art that has existed for over a hundred years.
