The game “Little Mouse, Little Mouse” is a storytime favorite at Miller Park Library and is a great way to promote rhyming and color recognition. There are many versions of this game, and I found this particular one on an outside blog.
Once everything is ready, set out the houses and secretly hide the mouse under one of them. Then have your child try to find the mouse by saying “Little mouse, little mouse, are you in the (color) house?”. Keep going until your child finds the mouse (which is always very exciting) and then play again or switch roles.
