Hot cold is a simple searching game for children. It can be played by as few as two players, but more people can participate as well.
You don't need any special equipment. The player has to search for something, but it does not actually matter what he searches for.
The group selects an object that has to be sought. One player (the searcher) leaves the room, the others hide the object. When the searcher reenters the room, he has to search for the hidden object. The group helps him by expressing "cold" (you are far away from the hidden object) or "hot" (you are very near to it). Of course, additional hints can be added ("getting hotter", "warm", "extremely hot", ...)
- Egg search is a more creative version of this game.
