Why Make a Letter M Craft

Great Fine Motor Practice

While doing this fun mouse craft, littles will work the tiny muscles in their hands.

This is important because it helps build up the muscles and gives them the strength to zip their coats, tie their shoes, and hold a pencil so they can write.

Helps to Connect Letter M to the Sound

After this activity, littles can recall (or reference their letter M craft) that the letter M was turned into a mouse.

While doing the craft with your little one, be sure to make the connection that the letter M is turning into a mouse because mouse starts with a “mmmmm” sound.

How to Make the Letter M Craft

1. Print out the letter M craft.

2. Color in the printable and trace the word ‘mouse.’

3. Invite your preschooler to try to cut out the elements for the mouse craft. Start with the straight lines on the side of the letter M. All the curves can be tricky, so you may want to step in before your little one gets frustrated.

There aren’t dotted lines around the nose and whiskers, but you will need to cut them out, too.
