BENEFITS OF I SPY GAMES FOR KIDS
I spy games aren’t just fun, they’re a great learning tool too! The kiddos are having so much fun they don’t even realize they’re doing some important work.
Let’s take a look at some of the ways I SPY game help kids build skills in so many different areas like math skills, literacy, memory, and more!
IMPROVES WORKING MEMORY
These types of activities are very beneficial for a child’s working memory. Working memory is your child’s ability to take in new information and then use it in some way.
During this kind of activity, kids really need to use their working memory to identify each object and distinguish them from other similar items and objects in the image.
It allows children to practice the ability to hold information in their minds while they work on another task that requires that information.
VISUAL DISCRIMINATION SKILLS
Visual discrimination is the ability to analyze and distinguish between differences and similarities between objects, letters, and numbers.
It is a must-have skill for both numeracy and literacy. These kinds of activities are a fun way to work on these necessary skills of learning to discern the details of similar items.
When you’re a young learner, it’s easy to mix up letters like p,b,q, etc.
We become better with practice, so why not make practice a little more exciting with fun games!
HOW TO PLAY THE ST. PATRICK’S DAY I SPY GAME
This I Spy St. Patrick’s Day printable activity is super easy to use and requires very little prep.
All you need to do is print out the game sheets and provide some pencils, markers, crayons, or pencil crayons and ask the kids to count, color, and record all the different items on the list.
If you want to be a little extra, my class loves using these cute little magnifying glasses when they do their hunt and I get to reuse them every time we do an I Spy activity.
You’ve got quite a few I SPY games to choose from: black and white or color. plus 3 difficulty levels of easy, medium, and hard. Or you could just do them all because why not!
The black and white one is great if you want to extend the activity because the kids can color as well as count and it lets the kids express their creative side.
It’s the perfect low prep activity for kids!

BEST PRINTING PAPER
For this fun low-key holiday activity, you can simply print them on your regular printing paper (8 1/2 X 11) and hand them out to your kids but I personally like to have them printed on something sturdier like this cardstock paper because we reuse ours every year.
HOW TO MAKE YOUR ST. PADDY’S DAY I SPY GAME REUSABLE
After I print them on cardstock paper, I also laminate them so the kids can use dry-erase markers and reuse the activity sheets over and over again.
This Crenova A4 Laminator is awesome because it does a great job and it’s super inexpensive!
This really comes in handy for those long car trips, waiting for appointments, or even when you’re dining out and the kids are bored.
