Hide & Seek With ABC’s!

Here’s a simple game that can help your kids practice their observation skills, counting skills and learning the alphabet! All while having a treasure hunt and finding a prize at the end! 😉 You will need some paper (different colors or all one color will work), a marker, scissors and a prize. Cut the paper into 26 squares. Whatever size you want to do is fine, but I made mine 2 inches.

Once your paper is cut, write the letters of the alphabet on the squares – 1 letter on each square.

Prepare a prize for the end of the game before you actually start the game with the kids. You can just have the prize hidden somewhere they can’t find it or you can do like I did and make up a paper bag to hold the prize. I added colored dots to my bag just to spiff it up a bit.

The prize can be something simple that the kids will have fun with or a special snack, a new box of crayons, a small Lego set, etc. As you can see in the picture, I used bubbles.

Hide the letter papers around your house in places the kids can look for them. You can keep them all in one room or spread it out a little farther for kids that are a little older.

Maybe on the piano…

Or among the cereal boxes…

In the bathroom…

Maybe by their favorite books…

Have the kids go around and find all 26 papers. This uses their observation skills to find the papers and then they also practice counting the papers. 😉 Once they have all the papers, let them line them up in the correct order of the alphabet.

When they finish that, they have finished the game (or treasure hunt) and they receive the prize!

Tweak the game to work for your situation and your kids. Hope the kiddos will have fun while practicing some good skills! 😉
