Today we make coloured mice with a sweet tail, for Christmas. The mice are fun in every color, you also can make a mouse rainbow out of them.

They are very quickly made in series, so suitable for the Christmas dinner-treat or for a Birthday Boy or Girl to hand out. If you do not want to dole out a sweet treat, you can easily replace the candy cane with a coloured pencil.
