Muley Reads: The Little Engine That Could

Ever feel like you could never beat the odds? Same goes for Little Engine, until she thinks she can! Good motto for us to all have! If we think we can, we can!

Can you go CHOO CHOO when you hear the words train, tracks, or engine?
Can you spot all the different animals?
What jobs do the different engines have?
What do they all wish to get for the good boys and girls to have?

Muley Reads: When Aidan Became a Brother

With so many species of animals, the MuleyVerse has always been inclusive and appreciative of people because of their individualities and differences, the things that make them special! Mules, dogs, ducks, horses, donkeys, and cows - all friends!


This sweet #ownvoices picture book by Kyle Lukoff, almost autobiographical, celebrates the changes in a transgender boy's life, from his initial coming-out to becoming a big brother.

Well, that's just what Harold does!  He likes to draw with his purple crayon, and he allows his imagination to take him on a great adventure - instead of going to sleep, haha!

Ears lookin' at you, kid!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have ears like Muley the Mule or Missy Mule?

Now, you can find out!!

First, cut paper in long strips, about 1" wide.  Tape that together to create a head band that goes all the way around your head.

Next, print the attached pages (on 8.5" x 11" paper, landscape).  Color them for shadows, or color Missy's bows any color you want, and then cut the ears out.

Attach the ears to your headband!  It works best if you attach Muley's ears more toward the front, or Missy's to the sides.  Then, cut out the mane and tape them on the front center.



Here, you can see where the ears are on their heads...

Muley on the Manta

We've been living vicariously through YouTube visiting theme parks and rides, and pretending to go on those rides.  Now, Muley has taken the rides to the next level and REALLY pretended to be there.

This coaster video of Sea World's Manta (Orlando) is courtesy CoasterForce.com and their channel has all sorts of great coasters to watch.  Thanks to Jerry for letting us use the video.

Obviously, everything escalates because:
MULEY!!
