At Easter, my sister hides chocolate eggs around the house and our nieces and nephews have an Easter Egg Hunt.
When the children are far away from an egg, we call out, “No. No. You are cold.”
If they move farther away from a hidden egg, we say, “You’re getting colder! Now, you’re freezing!”
When they move towards a hidden egg, we call, “Now you’re getting warmer!”
When they are very close to an egg, we say, “Oh, now you’re really hot!”
