Halloween I Spy Game
We've played "I Spy" with real toys before. See the post here.
This time, we tried a Halloween version of I Spy.
Little Guy helped me set out a bunch of Halloween themed objects: salt dough pumpkins, Halloween garland, pumpkin rings, plastic skeletons, cupcake toppers, googly eyes, and lots more.
After everything was laid out on the train table, we got started playing "I Spy"! I asked him things like "I Spy with my little eye, 6 bat rings." Visually scanning all of these little items is a great exercise to prepare for school-aged activities, like handwriting, word searches, and puzzles. He could find the items and then ask me to find some things. We played this way for a while and then played the visual memory game where I would remove an item while his eyes were covered and he had to tell me what was missing.
This was a fun holiday themed game and activity. We kept the "I Spy" table up until Baby Girl got up from her nap. She thought this was a pretty awesome sensory table, with lots to explore and manipulate!
