Invite your child to hide. Then search for them, talking out loud about the clues you’re using to find them. You can say, “I see something wiggling. I wonder if they’re near that chair” If they giggle, say, “I hear a laughing noise near the door” Now you hide and they make up the clues to find you!

Children love hiding games because they help them understand that when things disappear they can continue to exist. To stay hidden, they have to use self-control. By sharing your clues for finding your child, you’re helping them learn problem-solving skills too.
