My boys are six and three and have just started getting into playing Hide-and-Seek. My husband and I both have different ways that we played as kids and that got me wondering who was right. I mean obviously it’s probably me, but I thought I’d ask all of you how you play.

My husband plays Hide-and-Seek by having one person count while the others hide. When the person finishes counting they go find the hiding people and then it is the next person’s turn to count. This is an easy way to play with little kids.

My way is a little different. The main point is the same, one person counts while the others hide and then the person who is “it” has to go find those hiding. In my way though, there is a base, which is where the person who is “it” counts from. When they go to look for the others, those that are hiding try to sneak out from their hiding places and run to the base before the other person finds them and tags them. If you are tagged you are the next one to be “it”. If no one is tagged then the same person is “it” again.

Which way do you play?
