How To Play
The goal of an I Spy is simple: use visual tracking skills to find and count all the different objects in the game box.
Think of I Spy games as paper scavenger hunts where children use an imaginary magnifying glass to locate and count all the Halloween items in the legend.
Our Halloween I Spy worksheet is loaded with Halloween themed objects and items that kids need to group, organize and count as they play.
They can opt to color, circle, highlight, or make an X on each object as they make their way through the game box.
To make the activity more challenging, older children can opt to keep track without marking up the sheet. That’s completely up to them.
Once they’ve counted the total for each of the different items they should write the total in the small circle next to the object in the legend.
Our I Spy Halloween worksheet has the following Halloween items:
- Witch hat
- Spider web
