I Spy. Those two little words have filled endless hours of my children’s lives. Starting with hours of waiting in pediatrician’s offices with bored toddlers while we assessed why my oldest two daughters had rashes every other day (seriously, in one span we were in the doctor’s office twice a week for about 4 months!), then endless hours of occupying cranky preschoolers as we traveled (traveling with small children is always fun…), and now building language skills with my youngest, I Spy is that perfect game that you can do with no preparation. This Thanksgiving I Spy set is no different (well, you do have to print it…) Simply print & you have an activity to keep your little monsters (I mean, lovely well-mannered sweethearts) busy while you are making Thanksgiving dinner for the masses.

Materials for the Thanksgiving I Spy Game for Kids

  • Paper
  • Writing Utensil
– Life Over C's Thanksgiving I Spy free printable is perfect for practicing counting or a fun quiet-time activity during such a busy holiday season.

 To prep: Print the I Spy picture and checklist. Laminate the picture to make it more durable if you plan to use it with more than one child.

To use: Have your child count how many of each picture that they find and write the number in the box on the checklist. If laminating, we like to use dry erase markers or dry erase crayons.

Just like the Apple Orchard & Pumpkin Patch I Spy, this can be print and go if you want it to be. Otherwise, you can laminate it to use with more than one student or in more than one setting, so that you don’t need too much colored ink.

– Life Over C's Thanksgiving I Spy free printable is perfect for practicing counting or a fun quiet-time activity during such a busy holiday season.

To help the child keep track as they count, it may be helpful to cross off each picture as it is counted.

Otherwise, young children may count the same pictures multiple times.
