How do you play I spy?
When I was younger, we always played I spy on long car rides One of my parents would start by saying something like, “I spy… something that is red.” My brothers and I would take turns finding an item that was red and whoever got it right, was now in charge of finding the next item to “spy” for.
The printable version of I spy is a bit different. Here you will see a large box filled with items. At the bottom of the page there are 10 pictures with lines next to them. What you have to do is count how many of each image you see and write the correct number on the lines next to each picture.
And to add a little extra challenge to the activity, there are also a few extra food items to throw you off!
There are a few tricks to help you count the pictures:
You can draw an X through each item as you count them.
After you have counted and crossed off a few images it will seem less busy and the remaining items will be easier to see.
You can color each item.
This is my personal favorite! Break out the markers, crayons and colored pencil and color in each image as you count it. This is a fun way to add a little creativity into the game!
