Hide & Seek

How do you teach a 2 & 4 year old how to play hide & seek.. First of all the 2 year old can only count up to 8 so there is our first problem. Then the 4 year old never stays quiet when hiding & just yells for her sister to find her & she then gets upset when she is found so quickly.
So our goal today is to learn why it's important to cover/hide our eyes when we count.
We pick a different spot from the previous time.
Why we want to stay quiet & not make a sound when we hide.
We've restricted hide & seek to the upper level however that's 4 bedrooms/5 closets 2 bathrooms, laundry room & an office up for hiding. So on this rainy/snow day we are playing a wild game of hide & seek. Maybe by the time hubby comes home we'll have the basics down!
