Hidden Countries

I love to create for my which keeps them on their toes. I am posting one here which I hope you all would find interesting and challenging.

In the following sentences, you have to find names of hidden within these words. These are not clues to be solved but just words hidden within words.

Please write the answers in comment section but do not cheat

1)She jotted the date in diary to keep note.

2)The writer used Sir Aquarius as his pen name.

3)Professor Snape will teach in an underground dungeon.

4)I ran as fast as I could

5)She went to a health spa in Europe.

6)It is vital you stay for lunch.

7)The raja panicked when he saw the approaching army.

8)You might anger many people by your poor attitude. 9)Off ran Cecil in a fit of rage

10)The tailor has taken yards of cloth to make her bridal dress.

You also have to tell me which is most well hidden?

Children love to try out new things so I am sure they will enjoy this. If there are teachers or parents here, please feel free to use this post to bamboozle your children/ students.

Dawnwriter I see that MsBiz already found them all. I would have to say the easiest was Iran, the most difficul yes China. Bonus points to MsBiz, right?

This is very interesting. I see that the answers have been revealed already. But it was fun to look for them anyway.

I would consider any of them to be very well hidden, but of course they would still be good puzzles for children.

I am not good at solving puzzles. Sorry, I feel like a kid staring at those sentences blankly. hehe

Excellent work MsBiz . I agree even I had to look hard for China emoticon :smile:

Don't feel bad motrojam . It's not so hard For example "health SPA IN in Europe" contains Spain. it becomes easy once you know how to do it.

I'm going to show these to my 12-year-old tonight. She has mild dyslexia and puzzles like this are great for her, to mention more fun than "school exercises."

I also like to teach my children through games and puzzles. I am sorry to hear that your daughter has mild dyslexia. It must make things tough for you both. My love and best wishes for her.

I love using puzzles to teach because play is children's natural language. We could definitely use lots of love, prayers, and positive thoughts, because were just discovering my girl's learning disabilities. She's smart, intuitive, and resourceful, but learning through traditional means is a frustrating struggle for her. I'm just glad that we caught it now; my dad wasn't diagnosed with dyslexia until he was almost 40. He went through high school, college, and business school not realizing that the way he was learning wasn't the same way that other people were learning.

I'm a word puzzle junkie; I would buy a book of these and do them all day. emoticon :winking:

MsBiz That explains it, next time you need to wait at least 6 hours before answering LOL emoticon :smile:

I need not to answer anymore because I saw MsBiz answers already when I scrolled down! Sorry.
I may be trying this out for my kids too.
