Kids stand in a circle and hold each others hands. They pretend that they are a fence. With counting a rhyme the cat and the mouse are chosen. At the beginning of the game the mouse stands in the circle and the cat stands outside the circle.

Cat asks:” Mouse what are you eating?”

Mouse:  ” Cheese.”

Cat: ” Can I get some?”

Mouse: ” No!”

Cat: ” Then I’ll take it.”

The Cat tries to catch the mouse, and the mouse tries to escape. Children help the cat and the mouse alternately. The game ends when the cat catches the mouse. Then a new cat and mouse are chosen.
