Sometimes, as a dad, you need to hide stuff from your kids. Whether it’s a gift (or a pile of gifts), a new pint of ice cream or, um, adult toys, every dad needs a great hiding spot. Here are where the dads of our Facebook community hide the good stuff in their house.
Dale Callender Jr.: Right in front of their eyes. I mean — if they cant find the Ketchup bottle they want staring them in the face on the door of the fridge … its apparent things right in front of their face are super hidden.
Eddie Genninger: Hide it in the messiest room in the house and ask them to clean that room. Granted the room will be a mess for a while but you know they’ll never get to it. It’s all about sacrifice!!
Hannibal Grant: If it’s snacks, in your stomach. Everything else: high places. The look on my boys face when i put my phone on the fridge is great. I might as well have put it on Mars.
Sarah Goodwin: I use the cabinets above the stove because even I need a chair to reach them. For big stuff, we put things in our creepy basement that has a lock on it.
Joe Davis: For years I hid Christmas presents in the garage. Bought a trashcan, put a bag in it, put presents in it, and put the lid on it. Kids never lifted the lid once in a month.
Matt McWhorter: The center of their room. They can’t see anything in plain sight.
Doug White: If it’s ice cream, then under the frozen vegetables!
Clayton Cates: buy a box of cereal they would hate, and hide things inside of it.
Lance Leroy Newman: In their schoolbag.
Cory Sanford: Right next to the sex toys in the dresser.
Joe Pug: High up. My son is 10 now and it still works. I’m 6’2″.
Riccardo Kharmujai: Stick it up on the ceiling using tape!
Mike Rogers: Somebody’s kid just tricked all of you into giving away your hiding places!
