PussyCat, PussyCat Nursery Rhyme


Cat and Kitten Games and Activities

game
Cat Puzzles
Cut large cat shapes out of posterboard. Cover the shapes with clear self-stick paper and cut each one into several large interlocking puzzle pieces. This activity is perfect for small fingers. For older children, increase the difficulty by cutting each puzzle into smaller pieces.
Yarn Balls
Set up baskets at varying distances from a masking tape line on the floor. Toss yarn balls into the baskets.
Bean Bag Toss
Make a cat shape on plywood or a big piece of heavy cardboard, with holes of different sizes cut out. The children can try from varying distances to throw bean bags through the holes.
CopyCat
Have one child be the cat and clap a rhythm for the group. The other children listen and then be the copycats. They clap the same rhythm as he cat did. Another child now becomes the cat and creates a rhythm for the copycats to imitate.
Cat and Mouse
Cut and glue together a simple cat shape from black paper. Cover a coffee can- the mouse hole- with another piece of black paper. Make up enough small mice out of felt by cutting them out in teardrop shapes. Add a pompon and length of yarn for the tail. Glue sequins on for eyes or draw them on with markers. Next, turn a coffee can on its side and place it on top of a table. Place a dozen crackers leading up to the mouse hole. Have each child choose a mouse and the teacher picks the cat. Then let each child roll the die and move his or her mouse or cat that number of crackers. Let play continue, encouraging the children to try to move their mice into the mouse hole before the cat gets there. Game ends when the cat reaches the mouse hole or when all mice have safely entered.
File Folder Games
Make about 10 sets of cats and kitten pairs. Each pair should be a different color. For example a cat and kitten that are red and a cat and kitten that are blue, etc. Glue the cats to the file folder and laminate for durability. Have the children match the same color kitten to it’s mommy cat.
Cat Stretches
1. Have your children get on their hands and knees.
2. Tell them to slowly “walk” their arms out in front of them, one at time, until arms and upper body are fully extended.
3. Have them stretch like cats by leaning each shoulder one way, then the other.
Cat Rhymes
List rhyming words on a chart or chalkboard: cat, hat, rat, mat, pat, sat, fat, bat.
Cat Rhymes, Pt. 2
Make two-line rhymes:
The big yellow cat is old and _________.(fat)
Hurry, cat, catch that __________.(rat)
Did you see that cat in mother’s best ________ ?(hat)
The tiny cat sat on a tiny ___________. (mat)
Cat Sounds
Discuss the different sounds that cats make and what their sounds tell us about them. Imitate the sounds a cat makes when happy, contented, angry, frightened, hungry. Stress the differences in cat’s moods and why it is important not to tease an angry or frightened cat. Act out cats as they might behave in these various moods. Point out that lions and tigers are members of the cat family. Ask the children. “How would you like to meet an angry lion? How would you feel if you met a hungry tiger?”
Kitten Kare
Materials needed:
Cat care: cat bed or cat furniture/cubbie, collar and bell, catnip ball, rubber mouse, brush, canned food.
What to do:
Introduce pet care items explaining or demonstrating how each item is used and allow the children to examine the items.
Including the items above, have the children set up a cat care area using stuffed animals brought from home. The children will pretend to care for their kittens.
Helping Special Cats
Plan a field trip to the local SPCA and take bags of kitten food and bags of litter to be donated.
Story-time Kitties
Let children act out the story THREE LITTLE KITTENS. Let all children pretend to be kittens and crawl to the play area.
playAnimal Hospital 
The children can brainstorm ways to make the area look like an animal hospital. Let them make a sign and decorate the area themselves. Items for hospital:
cotton swabs
empty cat food boxes
cloth bandages
band aids
rubber gloves
long white lab coats
stethoscope
scale
clipboards
paper
pencils
baskets with pillows and blankets for overnight guests
cat food dish
water dish
stuffed animals from home
telephone
thermometer plastic (toy) for shots
Cat in the Hat
Read the Cat in The Hat and then make the hat so that the children can pretend to be the cat in the hat.
Cat Treasure Hunt
Have a ‘treasure hunt’ where the children have to search for things to do with cats (e.g. Jingle balls, Catnip mouse, etc). Thread a string through them all and make a Cat mobile.
Cats in the Neighborhood
Go for a walk around the neighborhood looking for cats and cat pawprints.
Flannel Board Story:
(Activity follows poem)
My poor little kitten lost her mitten
And started to cry, Boo-hoo.
So I helped my kitten to look for her mitten.
Her beautiful mitten of BLUE.
I found a mitten just right for a kitten
Under my mother’s bed.
But, alas, the mitten was not the right mitten,
For it was colored RED.
I found a mitten just right for a kitten
Under my father’s pillow.
But, alas, the mitten was not the right mitten,
For it was colored YELLOW.
I found a mitten just right for a ktten
On the hand of my brother’s toy clown.
But, alas, the mitten was not the right mitten,
For it was colored BROWN.
I found a mitten just right for a kitten
Under the laundry so clean.
But, alas, the mitten was not the right mitten,
For it was colored GREEN.
I found a mitten just right for a kitten
Inside a grocery bag.
But, alas, the mitten was not the right mitten,
For it was colored BLACK.
I found a mitten just right for a kitten
Under the kitchen sink.
But, alas, the mitten was not the right mitten,
For it was colored PINK.
I found a mitten just right for a kitten
Inside my favorite show.
And this time the mitten was just the right mitten,
For it was colored BLUE!
PREPARATION:
Cut a kitten shape out of white felt. Then cut two mitten shapes out of blue felt and one mitten shape each out of the other colors.
ACTIVITY: Place the kitten shape on the flannel board and put a blue mitten shape on one of its paws. As you recite the poem, place the appropriate colored mittens, one at a time, on the kitten’s other paw. When the children become familiar with the poem, leave off the last word in each verse and let them supply the rhyming color word.
ACTIVITY: As you recite each verse of the poem, place the appropriate colored cat shape on the flannel board. Encourage the children to try out different kinds of Mee-ows for each color cat.
