I found this free crochet pattern of a mouse. I made one for our Jr. Primary. Like all primary's, some days are more reverent than others. Kids love to hold stuffed toys and animals. On days that are a bit more difficult to maintain reverence, I'll pull out the Reverence Mouse. As the kids sing the songs, I'll watch for someone being reverent & yet still singing. I'll hand them the Reverence Mouse to hold through the next song & then pass it on to someone else, repeating for each song.
It's amazing how quickly the children will calm down:) I have also pulled the mouse out for comforting purposes. Sometimes the little Sunbeams become upset for one reason or another & cry. To help them feel better & to hopefully keep them in Primary, I'll give them the mouse to hold. Then the entire Jr. Primary will sing that child's favorite song or a reverence song to help him feel better. It works every time!
