Catching the Mouse

Children Playing Games

The children sit in two rows opposite each other with a space between. One child takes the place of “cat,” being blindfolded, the cat standing at one end of the row and the mouse at the opposite end. They start in opposite directions, guiding themselves by the chairs, the cat trying to catch the mouse. When the mouse is caught it is made the “cat,” and one of the company takes the place of the mouse.
