how to say “hide and go seek” in Hebrew

מַחְבּוֹאִים

The other day, we saw the word להטמין – to conceal.

The more basic verb, to hide, in Hebrew is להחביא .

For example:

אבא, איפה החבאת את האפיקומן?

Dad, where did you hide the afikoman?

hiding place is a מחבוא , so that the game hide and go seek, in Hebrew, is מחבואים – literally, hiding places.

For example:

ילדים נורא אוהבים לשחק מחבואים.

Kids love playing hide and go seek.

Both להטמין and להחביא are active-causative הפעיל verbs.

חג פסח שמח!

Happy Passover holiday!
