School project or not?

Along with the other piles of homework Ebi-kun gets from school, he has to do a project of some kind. The instructions are very vague! He made this mouse game just for fun and daddy suggested he used it for his school project but it got rejected by the boy (I think this about the third or forth rejection!)

The game is fun though...
He used one of those plastic balls from the gatcha gatcha machine and stuck on eyes, ears, nose and a magnet for a mouth. Then poked a long stick through one of the holes and used a pipe cleaner to make a tale.



Then, with some help from me (to draw the cheese pattern) he made up several blocks of cheese and stapled some of the sides.



The aim of the game is to get the mouse to pick up the cheese and dump it over the side of the box, not as easy as it looks!


And this is why it is a good idea to have a box full of crafty bits that you can pull out and dump in front of your child when you have a work deadline to meet!
