Hide and Peep App: Visual Scanning App

Play Hide and Seek with Peep and his friends!

Whimsical Peep and his friends peek out from behind items in the tool shed. Can you find them? Tap the spot where the character is hiding! This mainstream educational game was designed to encourage budding scientists to develop keen observation skills and practice their memory skills.

This free app can also be used to practice visual scanning. The adorable characters pop up and then disappear. Students can easily spot the brightly colored characters. Students are asked to tap where each character is hidden. Students have to remember not only where individual characters are hidden, but also have to carefully listen to know which character to find.


Hide and Peep has good contrast between the background items in the tool shed and the brightly colored characters. 

This app is not accessible with VoiceOver/screen reader.
