Ready or not, here I come!

Hide-and-seek is a popular game among children… and some elders too, right dad? Hiding games are a joyful way to help your little one develop their cognitive skills and gain a better understanding of their environment.

It teaches them how to regulate their emotions and develops social expectations – essential for happy and healthy development. Interesting, huh?

Here are some basics for you and your child to become the champions of good play:

  • Set a few safety rules such as the hiding area – especially if playing outdoors – and any out-of-bounds areas.
  • The “seeker” covers their eyes and begins counting while the others hide. Keep the counting number to one your child is comfortable with at their age.
  • The best part: The seeker yells “Ready or not, here I come!”
  • Try not to giggle in your hiding spot.
  • The player who gets found first is the counter for the next round, but this can be changed to give everyone a turn to be the seeker.

Remember everything starts in the tummy…when they feel right, they can enjoy growing up happy!
