What Do I-Spy Games Teach?

Kids learn by listening, observing, and doing – by exploring their environments through their senses. Sensory play is huge in our home, and this is why. By tapping into your child’s interest through play they will learn =)

We paired our I-Spy game with a book that we absolutely adored. My kids had a blast talking about everything they were thankful for as I gathered everything needed for our game of I-Spy.

Then we pulled out our Thanksgiving I-Spy printable and had a blast taking turns and playing together to find all the objects. We talked about the differences in each object including the ones of the same groupings. My daughter labeled hers with numbers while my son circled all of his and worked on his tally marks. It was fun had all around!
