20 Brilliant Little Children Who Have Absolutely Mastered the Game of Hide and Seek

If you’re up for a challenge, see if you can find the tots who have hidden in these photos. It’s basically impossible. They’re just too good…

    Children are quite egocentric — they believe their view (literally in this situation) is the view of everyone else. So, when they can’t see you, they believe you can’t see them. This trait, if I can recall my Child and Adolescent Psychology class correctly, is lost by the age of 5.

      Unless, of course, your child is the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal. Or thinks you are. Or has seen it approaching behind you…

    This just reminds me of how flawed we ALL are as humans. We think no one is watching , we assume that since we can’t see them, they can’t see us.

    So we scream in rush hour.
    So we treat our family like dirt, then act like angels in church.
    So we post pictures on Facebook that we regret 2 year (months… day… hours… minutes) later.
    So we become the kings of our own castle, not realizing that we’re merely the jesters.

    Brilliant! These remind me of my God-Daughter who loves hide and seek, although hasn’t quite got the idea. She tells me to go and hide and then comes to find me, all going well so far. Then it’s her turn to hide and she chooses every time to ‘hide’ where she has just found me, so I have to go off and pretend not to know where she is, even though she’s in the same spot she just found me in!! It makes me laugh every time :)

    Almost like someone else said….the child thinks because they cannot see who is looking for them that the seeker cannot see them. So sweet and adorable. I say that is true of people trying to loose themselves and hide in sin, wrongdoing, thinking no one sees them or cares. People do see and don’t care some of the time but our heavenly creator always sees and always cares and made a way through JESUS CHRIST and helps people seekers find the ones hiding. This was a blessing to see. Thanks to whoever posted this. We cannot hide from our creator, eh? Nope.

    Simply put, that is what it looks like when one tries to hide from Daddy God! He is so good and loving and kind.

    Rule number #1 If I can’t see you = you can’t see me. LOL I used to love playing with my son. I would turn my back and say okay go hide. He would cover his eyes with his hands. I would turn back around and say. “Where did he go?”, “He was just here”. He would stand there and laugh. I would do this until he took his hands away from his eyes Thensay ….”Oh there he is!”.

    Oh children are the greatest. I miss them at that age.
