Active Game – INDOOR HIDE AND SEEK - Needs a minimum of 2 players. There are few rules other than the basic point of the game, which singles out a seeker, known as “it,” while the other players find hiding spots. The seeker counts aloud to a number previously agreed upon by all players so they know how much time they have to hide.

This in turn allows them to venture to an appropriate distance and situate themselves before the seeker finishes counting. The usual speech goes like this: “One, two, three…twenty. Ready or not, here I come!” It is very important to tradition that the seeker say “Here I come” to let the other players know their time is up.

The seeker must close their eyes and often is required to face a wall away from the players. While the seeker counts, the other players look for hiding places and once they are positioned, they cannot move. The seeker finishes counting and the hiding players stay quiet as possible until they are found. They are not allowed to change hiding places once the seeker has finished counting.

Creative Activity - A-Z SCAVENGER HUNT OF ITEMS IN YOUR HOME. List A - Z down the left side of the paper. Then go from room to room to find items with every letter of the alphabet and the room you found it in. A= album in living room B = book in family room C = Candle in bathroom, D = door in front hallway E = empty glass in dining room - etc.
