Learn how to draw a Mouse, and a super cute one at that. This easy step-by-step tutorial will show you how.
The next time you need to have students draw a mouse to go with a story, this tutorial might help them out. It features a simple side view which shows off their pointy nose, round rear end and smooth tail.
This example is colored more like a Deer Mouse, with a white belly, but would work for your average gray mouse too.
Either way, remind students that if they want their mouse to look as cute as possible, they should pay attention to the size of the eyes. Bigger, rounder ones will always look more endearing than little squinty ones.
