Hide some of your toddler’s toys and let her find them. Hiding games are favorites for toddlers and they help them stay focused on an activity.
- stuffed animals
Step 1: Hide one of your toddler’s favorite stuffed animals (under a blanket, behind a chair, under a table, etc.) while your toddler is watching. Say a little rhyme each time you hide one of the animals.
Where is your little fuzzy bear?
He’s hiding from you and me.
Let’s see if we can find him.
Step 2: Go with your child to the place that the stuffed animal was hidden and pull it out with excitement.
Step 3: Take turns. Ask your toddler to hide a toy. Say the rhyme and then go with her to find the toy she just hid.
Step 4: Continue the game with the same stuffed animal or with other toys as long as your toddler remains interested.
