Spread holiday cheer to children of all ages and adults with this festive I Spy Christmas printable. This free 5-page printable includes an answer key and is a fun activity perfect for the Christmas season.
I played the “I Spy with my little eye” game with all three of my children. It was always a great distraction for them while we were waiting (at the doctor’s office, while traveling, while waiting for a sibling … oh, so many different situations!).
We were also huge fans of the I Spy books with the beautiful spreads of color photos of many objects. This I SPY Christmas book of picture riddles was one my family’s favorites.
I wished I’d had these free printable I Spy Christmas sheets for my children. But no worries, I’ve been playing them myself this week and plan on pulling them out when the family is all together for Christmas.
