Knit a mouse for our P1s

Help us with our Mid Mouse project

Mid Mouse final use

Can you knit or crochet mice for children starting Primary 1?

We’re looking for people who can knit or crochet for a project to give every child starting school in August their own ‘Mid Mouse’ to help them settle.

The deadline to hand in your mice is Monday 3 June. Children will get their mouse in the summer term, in the lead up to the school holidays. They will then take part in activities with their mouse, at their nursery and/or with their childminder and at home to make the transition to school easier. 

We want every mouse to be different and unique, like every child, so please feel free to choose the colour of the wool and we look forward to seeing all of the different mice created.
