If Walt Disney hadn't made Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse so popular many years ago, I doubt that we would think that mouse crafts would be all that much fun to make.

I am going to show you pictures of finished craft projects and also the site address so you can go directly to their directions. Many of these projects are fun and easy crafts for kids.

      Mickey Mouse is great, I like him a lot! According to Walt Disney's biography, Walt was inspired to make Mickey from his own pet mice. Walt would work late at his desk, the office mice would come out (not knowing he was still there) and fall into his metal wastepaper basket. Walt would rescue them, and keep them as pets in a cage on his desk (must have been a big desk!) - their friendly personalities and irrepresiblity inspired him to create a cartoon mouse... Hence Mickey Mouse was born, and he was always one of Disney's favourite characters. Walt even had Mickey printed on his employee's paychecks!(Ps: I love your lens, these are great mouse crafts. I've featured your lens on mine: . Thanks for sharing).
