Eggs (as many as you wish)
1 raw carrot
Method: Hard boil the eggs, then let them cool. Peel the eggs. Slice eggs in half lengthwise. Lay them down on wax paper. Wash and peel carrot. To make ears, cut 2 carrot slices, each about the size of a 2 cent piece. Cut a pointed base in each slice then stick points into egg just above narrow end. Stick 2 cloves into each mouse for eyes. For whiskers cut 4 short lengths of celery, and tail a long length of celery. Add them to the mouse. You can use shoestring licorice instead of celery.
