Game description

2 kids are named as cat and mouse. The rest of the group stands in a large circle. The mouse keeps trying to hold the cat up by running between 2 players and clasping their hands together so that no one can get through (the mouse cannot get through either). The possible openings are quickly decreased and if the mouse acts skilfully he can get through the last opening before the cat so that the cat cannot get in or out.


the aim is not to be caught by the cat and to close the circle in time so that the cat cannot reach the mouse.
