Optional: Crayons or markers, a stuffed animal cat.
Three little mice: Macy, Stacy and Daisy are very hungry. And they absolutely looooove cheese! Help them find the cheese that is hidden all over the room/house and carry it back into their mouse holes. Which mouse can find the most cheese? Which mouse is the quickest? Oh oh! Watch out for the cat!!!
Ask your child to not look for a while when you scatter around the cheese pieces. You might say the mice are sleeping in their mouse holes and put each mouse next to their hole and ask your child to join their favourite one for a pretend nap. Put the cheese pieces around the room or with an older child around the house. Start by leaving the cheese visible and easy to find so the child understands the game. As you play again and again hide the cheese into more difficult places. See which mouse finds the most cheese and carries it back to their mouse hole!
