Conspicuous Hiding

The girls have been playing hide and seek a lot recently - which we have encouraged as it is really good for Amber and Ruby with learning how to count. The house we live in is built on 3 levels, we have the large downstairs office/computer room where my husband and I work, the middle level is the kitchen, lounge, playroom and kids bedrooms and then there is upstairs which is our bedroom.

Basically, when the kids play hide and seek they can hide anywhere in the house - behind curtains, under beds behind couches, you get the drift.
The other day after school, the girls were playing. Ruby was counting, Jade and Amber were hiding. Jade decided to hide downstairs... below is a photo of her 'hiding' behind the curtain....

Would anyone like to guess how long it took Ruby to find her!?!




.... Just another day ....

It's great what they can learn from games. Have them count backwards, too.

What a great photo! I love it when my baby think he becomes invisible simply by putting his hands over his face!

Indigo: Lol! My daughter had the same reaction - until we showed her the photo of her 'hiding'!

frumhouse: He sounds very cute! They are so funny and fun to be with when they are little.
