What to do

  1. Ask your tot to close their eyes (or hide) until you've hidden Teddy. Hide him or her somewhere nearby - it's a good idea to pick somewhere where they are easy to spot for the first go.


  2. When he or she is safely hidden shout 'Teddy's ready!' and encourage your little one to look for them.

  3. Shout 'Found them!' when your tot spots Teddy and then let them have a go at hiding him or her. You could try this game at the park or even at Granny's house.
