Toddlers and preschoolers play this game during Story Time at the St. Charles Public Library. Miss Mouse is so popular we decided to introduce her to the Internet. Read on to learn how to play the game or click below to begin.
In the Internet version of this game Miss Mouse has six different colored houses in her neighborhood. She is inside one of the houses and her friends or familiar objects are in the remaining five houses.
With your child say, "Miss Mouse, Miss Mouse are you in the [name a color] house?" Then click on the house to reveal who is hiding inside. Let your child name what he sees.
Then click the "Back to try another house" button below the object to return to Miss Mouse's neighborhood. Do not use the back button on your browser.
Again ask, "Miss Mouse, Miss Mouse are you in the [name a new color] house? Then click on the house to check. You can continue with new colors until you locate Miss Mouse.
If Miss Mouse appears before you have looked in all the houses, you can still go back and ask Miss Mouse who is in the other houses.
Note: Miss Mouse will be behind one of the houses in each game. If you want to play again with new characters and colored houses, simply click on the new game button at the bottom of the neighborhood page.
*The Junior Room Staff at the Downers Grove Public Library created Miss Mouse as a character in a flannel board game.
