Hide and Seek Games
Rules and directions to our favorite Hide and Seek games such as the original Hide and Seek, Chain , Squished Sardines, Flashlight Hide and Seek and Kick the Can.
Chain Hide and Seek
Need: Children and lots of places to hide
Need: Kidsand places to hide
Object: Played like hide and seek with a twist.
First: Choose “it”. “It” then hides while all the other children count to 50.
Play: Players look for “it” and when a player finds “it” they hide with him. The game ends when all but one person is hiding with the original “it”. Very fun game! It’s hard to hide quietly with a bunch of kids together.
Strategy: While looking for it listen for laughter - that will usually direct you to the hiding spot.
Warnings: It needs to make sure their hiding spot is big enough for several people.
Kick the Can
Need: Empty can
After tagging or calling out a players name they have found, “it” must run back to the can, put their foot on top of it and call out “ 1, 2, 3 on ______” (fill in the blank with the players name) before the player who has been found can kick the can from under his foot. This gives the player who is caught 3 additional seconds to get out of their hiding place.
Flashlight Hide and Seek
Need: Flashlights and darkness
