We Play: Hide ‘n Seek

 I mentioned in my Father’s Day post that the girls play Hide ‘n Seek in their own special way and I thought it would be perfect for today’s We Play. 
We will often play Hide ‘n Seek together, but I simply love when they start an impromptu game on their own. Someone will ‘hide’ in quite an obvious place and call to the other to find them, in this case it was Ellie behind the height chart.
Find me!
Once the fits of giggles have subsided from Kahlei finding her and acting shocked, it’s Kahlei’s turn. Ellie will walk away and Kahlei will hide in the exact same spot Ellie was just in.
“Ide me,”

And so it goes. Nobody ever count, or if they do they’re still looking and even if they didn’t it wouldn’t matter, but they have so much fun and often end up rolling around on the ground because they find is so hilarious.

  1. Aww, how fun is that?!

  2. Too cute for words. I love Ellie behind the height chart. Her gleeful expression made me chuckle. x

  3. oh so cute!
    I love it when little kids just hide their head end and assume that means no one can see them!

  4. That is just to cute!

  5. Hide and seek is my favourite games, maybe because I can rely on 2 minutes of peace before I have to 'find' them. Hehehe.

  6. I love how little kids play hide and seek by hiding their faces! It's just so sweet and naive, absolutely gorgeous! It was one of the first games I played with my son and I just loved the way his face would light up!

  7. We find that the same hiding spots are used again and again when we play hide and seek, or that Princess will ask us where she should hide when we are the ones looking for her LOL. I guess it doesn't matter that they just don't quite get it, as long as they have fun, right? 😀

  8. It's really interesting to see how they understand the 'scocial' aspects of the game – taking turns, acting surprised – even if their actually hiding technique needs a little work 😉 I wondered if you might come and join our Play Academy on Fridays – it would be great to swap ideas with you.

  9. I so love it when children are just beginning to understand the way games like hide and seek work. It is so cute. My girls for ages would always hide in the same spot. They've only just recently started expanding their hiding spots.

  10. Hehehe, too cute. Immy plays hide and seek in just the same way although she has recently added the counting each time – usually only to 3 though as she is too impatient to start the game 🙂
