Hide and Seek is where one child places their hands to their eyes and counts to what ever number they want as long as its 10 or above. This then gives the other child a chance to hide somewhere. Once the child is who counting has got to their number, they shout ready or not here I come. Then they have to go and find the other child that is hiding.
Hide and Seek allows the children to communicate with each other as they are letting both of them know that they are ready. Children are using their physical development as they using their hands to cover their eyes and they are running to search for the other child.
This type of Activity is called associative play. Associative play is where children watch and copy other children. Children will then want to join in with the game and then it gets bigger and more of the children are socializing and communicating with each other.
