Cheer Up, Mouse! Do-it-yourself masks and activities!

Wow! Jed Henry, author of Cheer Up, Mouse, recently teamed up with The House that Lars Built to produce an amazing activity for kids.

They created animals masks for each of the characters in the book and provided step-by-step instructions (with photos) on how to make them at home. Using these masks and the book as a “script,” you can put on your very own Cheer Up, Mouse play!

Learn about the project and view the wonderful photos of the Cheer Up, Mouse play here.


And get step-by-step instructions and templates on how to make the masks here.
