My son loves to play hide and seek. The only problem; he is an only child and trying to find places that I can actually hide is tough. After several, “Mom, I see you hiding in the curtains – again!” we came up with a hide and seek game played with miniature toys. We would collect a handful of miniature toys and hide them throughout the house. However, once the toys were hidden, neither one of us could remember what we had hidden or where. So, I came up with a fun way to store our hide and seek pieces that also includes a “key” to show you what is hidden. The best part everything that you need you to make your own hide and seek game can be found in your child’s bedroom and the garage recycling bin, read on to learn how.
What you will need:
– 10 miniature toys
– scrap paper
– scissor or a craft knife
– colored pens or pencils
– eco-friendly packing tape
– an empty tin (we used an Altoids tin)
Step 1: Go on a Miniature Toy Hunt
Send your child off to their bedroom with the Altoids tin. Advise them to fill it with ten small toys – remind them that the tin has to snap closed when all ten toys are inside.
Step 2: Make the Key
Measure and cut a small piece of paper that will fit on the inside of the Altoids tin.
Step 3: Design the Key
Have you child draw 10 equal sized boxes on the paper. Then, have them draw a picture of each of the miniature toys that they collected, one in each box.
