MAG-NUT MICE

Carefully split a walnut in half, use white glue to add felt ears and tail, and a marker for eyes and nose. Paste a paper backing on the reverse side and add a small strip of magnetic tape (from craft or stationary stores). Presto — a fridge magnet! Or use them in a rolling race by adding a marble under each mouse. See how at the Oh Baby site.
