Twas the night before Christmas, 
when all through the house 
not a creature was stirring, 
not even a mouse.

After you have made your Christmas mouse footprint adding a child's name and age would be a nice added touch. If you want your Twas the night before Christmas cards to be opened you will need to mount the printable onto a larger folded piece of card. 

I first made these footprints with Daisy (age 2) and she was so proud of her little footprint mice.  I cant wait for her to hand them out to family at Christmas.
