Download and print out the one-page color printable. An adult or the child can cut out the cat and the mouse. An adult will probably have to cut out the two circles in each animal.
The child can cut out the 12 pieces of cheese. Encourage the child to use their thumb, index and middle fingers to crinkle each piece of cheese. These are the three active fingers when holding a pencil and other small objects.
