Flashlight Hide-N-Seek

I was reading a post on Mom's Marbles yesterday called Flashlight Fun. There were several ideas on games to play with a flashlight, including Flashlight Hide-N-Seek. To play, just give your little one a flashlight, turn out all the lights and ask your child if they can find an item in the room by shining their flashlight on it. It is so easy, inexpensive and it turned out to be really fun! Morgan and I played it last night until I ran out of things for her to find. She had a blast! She kept saying, "This is fun, Mama!", while laughing and running to find the next item. Morgan actually has her own dog flashlight that she got from her grandparents for her second birthday. It worked great as her little bloodhound, helping her search out her next item and barking when they found it. (It barks when she squeezes the handle to turn on the light.) Morgan had so much fun that she wanted to play again first thing this morning, so I tried to get some pictures. It turns out that taking pictures of a little girl running around in the dark doesn't work out too well. I could only find Morgan by the light of her flashlight, so most of the pictures weren't centered very well. Here are the pictures that turned out.

The next thing I'd like to do with the flashlight is a dance party. I'll let you know how it goes :-)

This is the coolest flashlight I've ever seen! I bet it was fun!

Morgan has been wanting to play every time it's dark! Definitely a lot of fun!
I'm pretty sure the flashlight came from Toys R Us. It's a Little Tikes and it comes in a couple different animals. :-)
