Hide it from Teddy

Age Groups: Toddlers
Skills: Empathy, Flexible Thinking


  • Teddy Bear or other stuffed animal, a toy to hide


  • Let’s play a game! First, let’s work together to hide a toy somewhere in the room.
  • Now I’ll pretend to be your Teddy Bear looking for the hidden toy! I can’t see it anywhere!
  • Shh! Don’t tell Teddy where the toy is hidden! Teddy will look in all the wrong places since he/she doesn’t know where to look.
  • Can you help Teddy find the hidden toy? (Older children can give Teddy directions on where to look.) You knew all along!


Hide - kept out of sight
Secret - information that you keep to yourself
