1. Make sure each person playing has a working flashlight
2. It is best to play at night when it’s dark, so in the winter that’s any time after 4:30 🙂
3. Find a stuffed bear or any stuffed animal…
OK… So we turn all the lights off in our house (well on our main level) and the boys each have a flash light. This alone can entertain them for a while… Once the flashlights have been tried and tested, tell them you need them to help you find a bear… I then send them to the bathroom while I hide the bear. I say “OK” lets hunt and they run around searching with their flash lights for our hidden bear… The first couple times I had to hide it in a pretty obvious location, but now we are old pro’s so I can be a little more tricky with my hiding skills. They absolutely love it and it entertains them for such a long time… Who would have thought something so simple could be so fun!
