Have fun building playdough mice with paper-curled
heads, doughy bodies and string tails. Role play the actions of this traditional
English nursery rhyme as it's sung aloud and introduce a range of words that
are associated with time and the routines young children are most familiar
with in their daily lives.

Prepare the activity by printing
the mice, rhyme sheet and clock face outlines or if preferred you are most
welcome to purchase
a copy of the fully illustrated images. Cutout and colour in as wanted.
Laminate the individual pieces and trim leaving
a small 2mm margin of white space around the outer edge.
Fold up the ears on each mouse and curl the head template into a pointed
cone, bring the insertion tabs together and secure in place with sticky tape.
This process can be a little tricky.
Laminate the accompanying rhyme sheet and clock face and enjoy marking off
the clock numbers using the golf tees with marbles balanced ontop.
Role play, rhyme and tell the time ...
