I don’t know about your children’s church, Sunday School, or Bible class students, but mine want to play the same games over and over. One of their favorite kids’ games it resurrector (which you can check out here!). Another of the top picks is Cat and Mouse– which we will talk about today!
This is a really active kids’ game. We love to take it outside when the weather is nice, but we also play it indoors (as long as you have a large enough room!).
One of the things that I like about this game, though, is that even though it is active, there aren’t that many people running at the same time– which means the chaos stays relatively low, and the kids don’t get too tired too quickly.

First off, make sure you have enough space. Second, everyone needs to find a partner. They will stand next to their partner and loop arms.
One person will be designated at the cat, and one as the mouse.
When the game starts, the cat will chase the mouse. If the cat catches the mouse, then their roles are reversed (the cat becomes the mouse and the mouse becomes the cat).
To make it more fun, though, at any point the mouse can latch onto one of the partner sets. When the mouse latches on, they are now safe. The mouse and the person in the middle of the three are now a pair, and the person on the other end becomes the new mouse.
So basically, the mouse can become safe and make someone else into the mouse.
The game continues until the kids are too tired to run anymore.
