Mouse-Eye View


  • Your time only

Yikes! You've been transformed into a mouse. But that's okay. Now you can see the world from a mouse-eye view.

Tell your child to imagine what life would be like as a mouse. Then, in character as a mouse, have your child describe the world. What does the room look like? How do people look different? And what about those favorite mousy spaces, like under the sofa and in the air vents, where humans almost never go?

Your child can describe a day in the life of a mouse. What did your child, the mouse, have for breakfast? How was school? How did other members of the family react to seeing a mouse?

Once your child has explored the nuances of mousehood, choose another critter—say a squirrel or a bird—for your child to playact. You might even take on a creature character of your own and interact with your child's new role. Two can play at this game.
