How to Draw a Winter Mouse with the Sketchin’ Tech

Sketchin’ Tech is a fun, family-friendly drawing show on YouTube where you can draw all kinds of bugs. Some bugs are beneficial, some bugs are pests, but all are fascinating and fun to draw!     

In this episode, we will learn how to draw a common pest, the Winter Mouse. Did you know a mouse can squeeze through openings as small as a dime? That means that any small crack invites a mouse to move right in! They are excellent climbers and can run straight up any rough surface or even along wire cables – like little acrobats! 

Let’s get our art supplies ready and watch this video to start drawing.

If you want to take your drawing to the next level, check out this video, which uses our Winter Mouse drawing to create some fun Art Magic!

Parents, here are some fun facts about Mice you can share with your kids:

Did you know that mice eat between 15 to 20 times a day? They are nibblers and sample many different foods but prefer grain-based foods. They will also nibble non-food items like cords and furniture. Mice’s two front teeth never stop growing, which is the reason behind their chewing. Since their teeth grow about 0.3mm daily, they need to chew on materials to keep them from growing too long.

Obviously, mice aren’t potty trained, but did you know that a house mouse produces around 40-100 droppings a day? They also pee just a little while walking around, which many children can be allergic to. This is one reason why mice bring serious health threats – they also carry disease and contaminate the food they eat in the home. 

Mice can sing! Mice talk to each other using amazing high-pitched sounds that we can’t hear, kind of like their own secret language. When boy mice try to impress girl mice, they make these ultrasonic “songs” with intricate patterns and frequencies. But it’s not just for love – mice also use these special sounds to chat about important stuff, like when they’re scared, warning others about danger, or claiming their territory. The sounds are so high-pitched that humans can’t hear them, usually higher than 20,000 hertz. Scientists use special gadgets to listen to and understand these mouse conversations, learning more about how these tiny creatures socialize and talk to each other.

Here are a few other fun facts: 

  • Mice are usually nocturnal animals. They have poor eyesight but make up for this with their excellent hearing and smell.
  • Mice’s tails can grow as long as their bodies. Their tails provide them with balance, allowing them to walk across ropes and wires. 
  • Mice use their whiskers to sense temperature changes and help feel the surface they are walking along.
  • Mice build very complex burrows with long entrances and many escape routes. 
  • Did you know that a group of mice is called a mischief? It makes sense – they certainly cause a lot of mischief when they get into your stuff!
