Quiet as a Mouse…

Tomorrow is a big day for my son’s kindergarten class as the letters Q & U tie the knot in a cute ceremony that bonds the two letters together to make the “kwa” sound.  This is a much anticipated event for the kindergarteners and because I took on the roll as class party planner this year I am busy pulling together fun activities for tomorrow’s celebration.  I have several stations planned where the kids will get to do a variety of “Q & U” activities along with some Valentine’s Day crafts.  The kids will make bookmarks with a poem about the letters Q & U on them, decorate letters, go on a scavenger hunt to look for words that start with Q & U, and make paper mice at the “QUiet as a mouse” station. Over the weekend as I was organizing the supplies I had my kids make up a few of the crafts to make sure they were doable.  Both of the boys really liked the mouse craft so I thought it would be fun to make a heart-shaped mouse lunch in honor of tomorrow’s celebration!

This lunch includes:  peanut butter mouse sandwich with white american cheese accents, celery and peanut butter (if nut allergies are a concern you might try sunbutter), grapes, cottage cheese, almond flour chocolate chip cookie, dark chocolate squares

Here’s the little craft that inspired the lunch.

    We were asked to send in treats for “Q” day…….we sent in “Quaker” Granola Bars and I got 100% juice and made labels “Q Juice” for a snack. It’s a hard one to come up with! I like your “kwa” ideas…. the quiet as a mouse station is very creative!
