Time for a Valentines Day I Spy!! Our other I Spy themes have been so well loved, that I am continuing with a new our just in time for Valentine’s Day. I Spy is one of our favorite activities during times of waiting and boredom. It can be played solely with your eyes, but sometimes it’s fun to use I Spy books or these fun printable pages. As an added bonus these Valentines Day I Spy pages help to build counting skills for young children.
Materials needed for the Valentines Day I Spy:
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.
Just like the Winter Wonderland, 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.
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.
This season have some fun with a Valentines Day I Spy! Then, extend the game by playing I Spy using Valentine’s Day themed craft supplies or toys!
We always have a themed shelf for our craft supplies, so it would be fun to pull out a selection and create a hands-on I Spy game! How would you extend the activity?
