Flannel Board Hide and Seek Game
Big and round
Behind which mitten
Can you be found?
To play the game:
Put each mitten on the flannel board one by one talking about the color of the mitten. For toddlers you can say the color and invited them to repeat it. For preschoolers you can ask them what the color is and then reinforce their learning by repeating the name of the color.
Once all the mittens have been placed on the flannel board, turn the board around and hide the snowball behind one of the mittens. As you are doing this you can explain how the game works. Turn the board around and say the chant. Have the children guess a color. Look behind the color. If the snowball is not there, have another child guess. If the snowball is there, cheer! You can turn the board around and hide it again. I have found that little ones enjoy this game 5-7 times or until all the colors have had a turn to hide the snowball.
