In middle school, I made these mouse candy cane treats as a fundraiser for the Spanish club. It seems like eons ago (maybe because it was). As I was thumbing through my latest purchase, Martha Stewart's Handmade Holiday Crafts book, I came across the exact same idea. It brought back such memories that I decided to make these for my kids classroom friends. I don't know what was crazier, cutting out 50 of these, or cutting them out the night before (and finishing it the morning of their party - which was also the morning I had to make R.'s birthday cake!). I know, I am crazy like that (hence the lack of sleep this past week). My husband thinks I am nuts for spending so much time on things like this, but I just can't help it.
All you need is felt (color of your choice), glue and candy canes.
