Hiding & Seeking

Little Man is understanding more and more, seemingly every day. And something that he understands very well, is playing Hide and Seek. He knows the name of the game, and as soon as he hears it, he runs off to hide, scampering off as fast as his little legs will carry him, giggling and gurgling with glee. There are sometimes the ‘hides’ where he drops to the ground and cover his eyes, because of course, we totally can’t see him then. But on the whole, he’s actually quite good at it! Way better than his sister was at this age, as he hides somewhere and stays totally silent while he waits to be found, something that Boo didn’t master until quite recently, as she always has to making noise, it seems! His favourite place, by far, is behind the kitchen door, sneaked cosily in by the cupboards. It was there that he chose to hide when his big sister was searching him out the other day…..


It’s an adorable game to watch them play together, and it never gets old either, for them to play, or for me to watch. Though of course, I invariably get involved in the fun, too. You can’t resist these pair of gigglers when they get going! These are the playful moments that I want to treasure and remember.

Do your little ones love this game, too?

  1. What a gorgeous picture! My eldest has mastered some very good hiding now but littlest is still in the giggling and hiding his eyes ‘so you can’t see me’ stage-every night he ‘hides’ in his bed 🙂

  2. Ah this is just gorgeous! Must be so lovely hearing them giggle with each other! Hide and Seek is a fab game for them both to play too! Monkey’s favourite hiding place is behind the curtains, though like little man occasionally he also thinks hiding behind his hands is an exceptional hiding place 😉 xx #magicmoments

  3. That picture is absolutely adorable!!! Makes my heart melt for sure. His face says it all how amazing and happy he is playing hide and seek. Its a favorite in this house too. Although Missy Moo hasn’t quit caught on she thinks she is hiding in plane sight. hahahaha Lovely post. #whatsthestory #magicmoments

  4. So wonderful when they start to get basic games like this. My tweens will still play variations on hide and seak so you have years of fun ahead of you

  5. Oh my word he is just adorable Jocelyn, look at that face! You must have so much fun with him during the day. Hide and seek is the best game and Little Man clearly loves it. Wonderful post, thank you so much for sharing with #whatsthestory

    1. Thanks very much – he is rather cute! We do have fun, and this is definitely a favourite of his. Thanks for hosting x

  6. Love that picture of Little Man – so cute! JJ is really into hide & seek right now but EJ not so much – I wish he was though because then they could play together and I wouldn’t be roped in so much!! If he gave me a little more time mind you, I could find a really great place and then I’d have a few minutes to do some blogging!! He he! #magicmoments

  7. Ahhh! He is such a cutie! And after yesterday I can’t believe he would sit still long enough for a game of hide and seek. Bless him and his beaut hair #whatsthestory xxx

    1. It is incredible to see him silently hiding, keeping still, when you consider his normal activity levels! Thanks 🙂 x

  8. It seemed to take mine an age to get the hang of hide and seek but they got there in the end and they still play it now – although on a much larger scale, outside, which can keep them occupied for quite a long time!

  9. We love hide & seek too – although like Boo the boy still hasn’t grasped staying quiet and will giggle more the closer we get – great memories #letkidsbekids

  10. This is such a lovely post and photo. Harry loves to play hide and seek too. I love hearing him giggling when you say “where’s Harry?” It’s the cutest thing x
