This free Valentine's Day themed I spy printable for kids is a perfect way to work on a variety of skills! It would also make a nice non-candy Valentine's card alternative.

If you're looking for a quick and easy Valentine's Day activity for kids, then this free printable Valentine's Day I Spy game for kids is a perfect idea! The kids will love visually scanning and counting up the different hearts and valentines. But be careful! The clipart on this printable are all quite similar and require greater visual discrimination than some of my other I Spy printables.

The Benefits of I Spy Games for Kids

I Spy printables like this Valentine's Day 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.

This 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.
