Poke the pink pipe cleaner inside the body


Take the pink pipe cleaner and poke it through both the black and white twisted pipe cleaners. This will form the spine and leave a little bit sticking out at the front to form the mouse's nose. Also leave a longer piece sticking out the back and twist this into a spiral mouse tail.

Add the spine/tail


Take the remaining pink pipe cleaner and form two spiral shapes to create little pink mouse ears. Attach the mouse ears to the spine in between the head and the body.
