Cat and mouse
Looking for a great outdoor activity for the kids? Get them into a Cat and mouse game! It's a fast, fun and exciting game to keep the kids laughing and running at your next birthday party or family gathering.
Number of players:
Ask for two volunteers to play the cat and the mouse.
The other players should form a circle and hold hands.
The player who is the mouse should stand inside the circle and the cat should stand outside the circle.
The aim of the game is for the mouse to get outside the circle and avoid being caught by the cat.
The mouse must stay moving while inside the circle but cannot stay inside the circle for more than 10 seconds.
The cat cannot come into the circle but they can reach into the circle to grab the mouse.
The circle players have to try and keep the cat away from the mouse by holding up their hands to let the mouse in and out of the circle.
They can also block the cat's attempts to grab the mouse by standing in their way.
If the mouse is caught, the mouse becomes the new cat.
The old cat takes the place of a player holding hands and another player becomes the mouse.
