Cat and Mouse Chase

Game Description: 
A fun game that gets the kids to practice catching and throwing!
Use two balls, one larger than the other. (ex: a small sponge ball as the mouse and dodge ball as the cat work great) Start of with the children seated in a circle. Tell a short story about how the Cat always chases the Mouse and the Mouse is little but quick. The balls are handed from one child to the next as quickly as possible. Start the smaller ball, the Mouse, first and the larger one, the Cat, a few seconds later.
Progression (optional): 
Progress from sitting and passing to standing or rolling the ball.
