Today’s Magic Moment

Some of the best games with kids are super simple. I like this activity because it takes stuff you’ve got lying around and gives you a new way to use it to interact with your kiddos.




For little ones…

  • If your little one is just getting going on talking, choose objects whose names he can already say.
  • Shake out all the items, and ask him to “hide” them from you – now you play the game.

For bigger kiddos…

  • Want to make the game harder? Choose items your child will know, but don’t show her before putting them in the bag. See how many she can guess.
