You may be having lots of CDs you have no use for. Here is a simple yet cute craft to recycle CDs. This recycled CD Mouse craft was made by my 4 year old daughter in Summer camp at Planet kids . My daughter told me its to hang in our car but we felt little mouse should stay in our home and gave the little mouse a place in our drawing room!
How to Make this Cute Mouse
Materials to make a recycled CD Mouse
Old CD
Black colored Paper
Pink Colored paper
Ribbon
Glue
Sticky tape
Googly Eyes or Hand cut eyes

CD Craft-Mouse 
To make the ears cut out 2 large circles from black paper -with younger kids cut the circles out for them.Older ones can trace around a cup and cut out the circles.
Cut 2 smaller circles in pink paper and stick them over the large black circles
Make a radial slit on the circles and curve the flaps to create a ear shape. Glue or staple to hold the shape
Stick to the back of the CD using sticky tape
Make whiskers from thin black paper and stick on to the CD
Use Googly Eyes or hand cut white- black eyes for the little Mouse's eyes
Finally tape a loop of ribbon at the back of the CD so that you can hang your creation. Have Fun
