This free math themed I spy printable for kids is a perfect activity for Pi Day!

Pi Day is right around the corner and honestly, it's the perfect holiday for a kid with hypernumeracy. Of course, my son would love a day that celebrates math! So I made this free math themed printable I Spy game for him to help celebrate the upcoming Pi Day. 

It may be a perfect Pi Day activity for kids, but for six year old J, this kind of game is an everyday activity for him. He just lives and breathes math 24/7.

The Benefits of I Spy Games for Kids

I Spy printables like this fruit 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.

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.
