Whether I want to believe it or not, we will be hit with our first snowfall soon. It could happen around Thanksgiving weekend (mid-October here in Canada) or around Halloween. Or maybe we will be lucky and snow won't fall until November, but that's usually not the case where we live.
So in preparation of our long, cold winters, I made this snowflake themed I spy game for kids to get my boys excited for snow and winter.
The Benefits of I Spy Games for KidsI Spy printables like this snowflake themed one are great for providing visual sensory input to kids, making them a great choice for visual sensory seekers. They also help develop a child's visual tracking ability and improve visual discrimination. This printable requires kids to visually scan through the objects and find ones that are the same.
Playing I Spy with your kids is also a great way to improve speech, language, vocabulary, and comprehension skills. I've discussed how playing I Spy games with kids can improve comprehension in kids with autism and hyperlexia before.
These types of I Spy games also encourage math learning by asking kids to count how many of each object they find.
Download the Free Printable Snowflake Themed I Spy GameThis printable includes one I Spy game sheet and one answer sheet to record the number of objects found. The answer sheet uses the written word as well as an image of the object to search for to help improve comprehension - something kids with hyperlexia struggle with.
