When children are smaller hide and seek is pretty easy.  As they get older you better have a big house or get creative.  We don’t have the big house so we got creative. 

Animal Hide and Seek

Keep it to a certain number like 2 animals per child.  Make sure everyone playing sees what the animals look like first.  Play like normal only instead of hiding themselves they hide the animals (or guys, barbies, etc).  The seeker looks for the item.  If it gets too hard then you can use the HOT/COLD hints to help the seeker.  This has worked great for us!

Have a “Hiding” Day!
