A word of advice: it is wise not to train her that your hand is a live mouse. Your goal is that she be gentle with your hand (but vicious with a sock with another sock and a hand inside it, for instance...)
The best success I've had was by making the hand reallllllly boring (goes limp when touched by claw or tooth - if it's limp, it's dead, and kitty abandons prey play), while making alternative toys rather more interesting.
Have you dragged something around by a string, yet?
Do you - and this is the crux of the matter - do you have a laser pointer for her to follow?

laser == dangerous near eyes, be careful!

Absolutely. The guidelines in our how is that the light must be pointed at a distance from the cat's eyes - targeted only on things. Laser-bearer loses turn (and face) if light goes onto cat.
Take my word for this: no-one wants to lose a turn with the laser pointer when playing with a cat. A less dangerous version involves reflective glass (mirror, watch cover) and sunlight... ...it is only a little harder to "drive" and the cats adore it. Rainbows from prisms are next in line-of-joy.
