  • Mice Game

    This game is the same as sardines but like sardines squashed into a can mice can also squash into small spaces. You therefore have to have enough children to play the game but before starting the game it is essential to make sure that there are only safe places around your house that any children can hide. Children can find the most interesting but dangerous places to hide when you don't expect them to.

    The game starts off like hide and seek but with this game at the start only one child hides (mouse) whilst the rest of the children close their eyes and an adult standing with them counts up loudly to 100. Once 100 has been reached then one of the children with the counter goes off to find the hidden child whilst the adult counter stays with the other children and starts to count to 100 again. If the child searching finds the mouse then they quietly hide with them. If 100 is reached again before they have found the mouse then the child searching is out. Then at 100 another child goes searching for the hidden mouse/mice. The adult starts counting again. This carries on until all the children have had a search for the mouse/mice. All the hidden mice at the end are the winners!
  • Here are some facts about mice and clocks. Did you know that
  • Mice are not only small but they are also excellent at squeezing their bodies into very small spaces. A mouse can get through a hole the same width as a pen. Can you roll up very small? Ask an adult or another child to make a gap with their arms or legs and see if another child can get through. Like limbo lower and lower you can take it in turns getting the gap smaller and smaller.
  • Mice are not only very fast, they are good jumpers, swimmers and climbers.
  • A wood mouse can shed its tale if it is in danger and is caught by a predator.
  • Mice do not have very good vision compared to other animals. Their vision range is similar to a humans but they do not see all the colours that humans see. They make up for this by having better olfactory (smell) senses and they use their whiskers to sense objects and movements in the air.
  • Male mice are called bucks, female mice are called doe and baby mice are confusingly called kittens! Perhaps more understandable however is that a group of mice are referred to as a "mischief"!
  • Our days are divided up into certain things we need to do during the day often at set or around a similar time each day. We therefore frequently need to know the time by using some form of time keeper. In the olden days this was achieved by the use of sundials, water clocks and candles with marks on them but about five hundred years ago clocks were invented. There were various types but for a long time the most accurate of these was the pendulum clocks such as the grandfather clock.
  • Most grandfather clocks are between 6 to 8 ft tall and made with ornately carved wood. The later models have chimes in them which means every quarter hour the clock plays different chime sequences, with the main one being on the hour.

    Play this YouTube video to see a grandfather clock and hear it's chimes.

    Do you think the mouse was frightened off by the chimes??
  • Nowadays there are far more types of clocks and time keepers and the invention of electricity, the use of crystals and other devises have meant they can be very small. Many people now use their phone as their primary time keeper and grandfather clocks are mainly kept for decorative and antique value instead.
  • Hickory Dickory Dock is an English nursery rhyme. The earliest recorded version of the rhyme is in Tommy Thumb's Pretty Song Book, published in London in about 1744, which uses the opening line: 'Hickere, Dickere Dock'
