This is a chase game based on the nursery rhyme ‘Three Blind Mice’.
Split the class into two teams – mice and farmer’s wives. The mice have ribbons or scarves tucked into the back of their shorts.
The children spread out, and on the command, ‘Chop off their tails!’ the farmer’s wives try to grab as many tails as they can.
A visitor suggested adding music to this activity so the children have to change roles when the music stops.
