Hide an object somewhere in your home so that your child does not know where it is. The object can be anything, but it would be fun to use play money or a container of costume jewelry to make it seem like something valuable. Then make your child the detective in charge of finding the stolen money or jewels or whatever. Leave clues around the house for the child to find, if your child can read, or give oral clues if your he/she can't. A variation on this game is to make it a "treasure hunt" where the child has to hunt for missing treasure that you've hidden somewhere in the house or the yard.
