Cat and Mouse

Ah yes! That old game of cat and mouse. We know that the cat chases the mouse but we forget the fun part: the mouse tries to trap the cat. Here’s how you actually play it.

Object: The mouse tries to trap the cat before the cat catches him.

Materials: None.

Area: Half volleyball court.

Number of Participants: 10 – 20

Set-up: Choose on person to be the cat and one to be the mouse. Have everyone else stand in a cirlce about arms distance away from each other.

How To Play: On GO, the cat chases the mouse who must stay within the boundaries of the half volleyball court. They  may run in and out of the circle of people. As the mouse runs out of the circle, the players she/he ran between must hold hands, forming a closed space that the cat may not pass through. The mouse taunts the cat in and around the circle trying not to get tagged. If the mouse gets tagged, they are caught and the cat wins. If the mouse successfully traps the cat in the circle the mouse wins.
