Chester's Way - DIY Story & Craft

One week I used Chester's Way as inspiration for our class.  I found this great printable from Live Oak Media that had lesson plan ideas and discussion questions.
For our craft I decided to keep it simple and had the kids make "disguises" like Chester, Wilson and Lilly wear in the book.  I had little mouse faces that I got at the dollar store and the kids drew their own disguises on them. 
Then I pulled out what I thought would be the exciting part.  I had mustaches for the kids to have their own disguises.  Sadly they were less than excited.  But as you can see from the photo, my teacher's helper and I were excited about the mustaches.  ;-)  Oh, well... not every idea is a home run.  But that is ok.
