Mouse Count

IMG_1607 (1)

A lovely story about a hungry snake who finds 10 little mice and counts them into a jar for his dinner. But the clever mice rock the jar and “uncount” themselves.

Practise counting forwards and back by acting out the story.


Acting out the story with a snake puppet and mice made from pebbles. “I will fill this jar with dinner,” said the snake. “First I will count the mice and then I will eat them up”.


Alternatively use plastic mice. Count them in and count them out again.
