Hide the Beanbag

Hide the Beanbag (3)

This is a great game to help toddlers understand the concepts of being visible versus hidden. All you need is a beanbag or two!

You can technically play anywhere, but when I originally tried the game using furniture and pillows in a big room, Veronika wasn’t interested.

Of far greater interest to her was playing the game in her dollhouse. I think the smaller space made it more tangible.

We would hide a beanbag inside or under a piece of the dollhouse furniture, although “hide” was a relative term. I always left some of the beanbag visible, which made the skill level just right for a toddler. She would move the furniture aside with a big flourish and I would announce, “You found it!”

Then she started “hiding” the beanbags herself. She placed a piece of furniture over one, then moved it herself.

“I found it!”

Now that she had the idea, she ran off to hide the beanbag elsewhere in the house.

This game is a great early form of hide-and-seek!
