Verstoppertje – The Netherlands

Verstoppertje  Europe The Netherlands Running around No props  N.o.p.: 4> Some children play hide and seek. One child counts (the seeker) up to 10 with his eyes closed, in the mean time the other children hide somewhere. This game has different varieties in many countries, you can play it as ‘the first player to be found is the seeker in the next game’ or the other way round. This game becomes more fun and is considerably speeded up when the hiders do not remain in their hiding places, but try and get back a.s.a.p. to their starting- place unobserved while the seeker is way out looking for them.
