Nobody knows kids’ puzzling like Highlights! Hidden Pictures puzzles, entertaining kids for more than 70 years, are more than just seek-and-find activities. They’re innovative, expertly crafted, and full of the humor and challenge kids love.
The Benefits of Hidden Pictures Puzzles
Promotes attention to detail and increases vocabulary
As kids gain experience in looking for hidden objects, they become better at focusing on the details of other visual challenges.
Reading the picture clues helps children become visually familiar with the names of many objects.
Instills good work habits
Because Hidden Pictures puzzles are so absorbing, children spend more time on the activity, thus increasing their concentration, persistence, and determination.
Using the picture clues encourages independence while solving puzzles
Age is not a determiner of success in completing a Hidden Pictures puzzle. A young child can often spot something that an adult or an older child misses— even in challenging puzzles. Imagine what that does for a child’s confidence!
Family-friendly and time-tested!
Hidden Pictures puzzles are perfect for the entire family!
There has been a Hidden Pictures puzzle in every issue of the magazine since the first issue in 1946.
The three objects hidden most often are: pencil, toothbrush and banana.
2,417 toothbrushes have been hidden since 1946!
