Find It

This is a good family observation game. Select a small object to be hidden, such as a fifty-cent piece or a book of matches. One person is selected to hide the object, and all other Guides/ Princesses are sent from the room. "It" then hides the selected object, not too high, where it can be seen by everyone. The object may be behind something, but never under anything. Players are warned not to touch anything when they return to the room. As soon as a player sees the object, he/ she sits down. The first one who found the object gets to hide it in the next game. A good place to hide the object is beside a chair leg or behind a lamp, or on top of a book. A good variation is to have the children all hide the object together and have all the dads look for it. Then reverse the procedure.
