The Sounds of Hide-and-Seek with Preschoolers

Piper’s Turn:


“1, 2, 3, 4, 5… Mommy, I’m gonna count to 6. 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 6.”


Mommy’s Turn:


Piper: STOMP STOMP STOMP Closet door slams.


“Where’s Piper?”




“Is she under the bed? ….No.”




“Is she behind the door? …No.”


Giggle. “I’m in the CLOSET!”


Teddy’s turn:


“1, 2, 18, 19, 28. Here I come! In da closet? No! In da bed? No! ‘Hind da curtain? No!” (Even though he knows exactly where we are.)


Mommy’s Turn:


“Where’s Teddy? Is he under the blanket?”



Piper, from her hiding spot, in a super loud whisper: “Teddy! Be quiet!”


Piper’s Turn:

“Mommy, you hide in the closet. Teddy, you hide under the bed.”


Mommy’s Turn:

Toby, climbing into the cupboard: “Mommy, shut the door for me.”


Mommy counts. “Ready or not, here I come!”


Toby starts crying from inside the cupboard because he keeps popping the door open with his leg, and Teddy collapses on the bed sobbing because he couldn’t figure out where to hide. Hide and seek is over.

Piper, Teddy and Toby
