Puss in the Corner

Kid’s Party Games

If you hadn’t heard, it’s TV Turn off week. And there are plenty of fun songs and pseudo-activities to keep everyone busy without it.

And of course, there’s also old fashion kids party games

Puss in the Corner

This game is really for five players only, but, by a little arrangement, six or seven children can take part in the fun.

Four players take their places in the different corners of the room, and the fifth who is Puss stands in the middle. If a greater number of children wish to play, other parts of the room must be named “corners,” so that there is a corner for everyone.

The fun consists in the players trying to change places without allowing puss to get a corner. When they leave their corners, the player in the centre tries to get into one of them.

When the centre player succeeds in getting into a corner, the one who has been displaced has to take his place in the middle of the room.
