    Spooky Hide and Seek
    butterflygarden posted:
    On Fall weekend nights the kids in our neighborhood like to get together and play what they call "spooky hide and seek". It's fun because it is dark and when they hide they can jump out at each other.

    So, there are two people who are "it" and the others hide. When the "it" gets close, the hider jumps out trying to scare the searcher then RUNS for base. I guess it is more of a combo of hide and seek and tag.

    The kids will play the game for hours, screaming and laughing.

    And, sometimes they are lucky enough to get to end the night with the bonfire and the s'mores that Sarah talks about in her post earlier.
