Today’s I Spy Game that I am sharing with y’all is an Ocean Themed I Spy. This last week I have been working my way through putting all of our content into thematic units for y’all (it’s turning out pretty damn awesome). As I was throwing these thematic units together I kept on thinking, you know what this needs? An I spy game! ha.

So here y’all go – a fun ocean themed I Spy Game to go along with any summer learning activities you may be doing!
