As a child I always enjoyed fun worksheets and I used them with my own children. Even now as an adult, I find word searches, mazes, coloring sheets and I Spy worksheets relaxing and fun to complete.
What is I Spy good for?
While many of us grew up playing the I Spy with my little eye game or searching through I Spy books and worksheets, have you ever wondered what are the benefits of playing it?
- It is fun – you get the rush of finding another, and another, and another until you find all the items you’re searching for
- Practices and develops visual discrimination – the ability to distinguish features of images from each other
- Develops attention span and focus
- Exercises your working memory – you have to hold the item you’re searching for in your memory as you look at all the items
- Develops fine motor skills as you mark through items found and write down the number of items
I Spy Printable for 4th of July
This 4th of July I Spy printable game contains 30 different patriotic images, with 10 unique images on each game sheet. The answer key shows each different game board with the answers filled in the blanks.
I recommend you search for one image at a time. Pick the image you want to look for and then continue looking until you’ve found all of that item.
It’s easiest to mark through an item when you find it and put a hash mark on the line to count that item. When you believe you’ve found all the images, you can write the number for the total of the hash marks above the marks.
