This is a fun simple game to play with your toddlers. You can play it at home or make it even more fun outside. Kids will enjoy trying to find their stuffed animal by following a string.
Tie one end of a long string (we use knitting yarn) to a favorite plush toy such as monkey or teddy bear. Trail the string around the room, back yard that leads to the monkeys final hiding spot.
Weave the string around the room, over and under the furniture, outdoors, in out of rooms. You can make it as easy or as hard as you wish. You can also expand it to the back yard or to final hang out area. The kids can be following the monkey trail to lunch or bath or nap time.
When finished with the set up give the other end of the rope to a toddler and have them follow the animal, track the animal or just look for monkey or teddy. They may need some help with rolling up the yard and may have to rely on a parent to help.
Our monkey was taking a nap in the bedroom but others often hide behind closet doors.
I am not sure if my kids had more fun finding the monkey or doing tricks with the monkey holding on to a string.
They were pulling and giggling.
the monkey looked like a little home made puppet
or a silly version of Cirque du Soleil
My daughter is still trying to get this silly monkey off her back.
