Fall is in full swing where we are. In fact, I first noticed the leaves starting to change color at the beginning of August. Now many trees are bare or close to bare and the temperatures are definitely much cooler. As much as I love summer, I do love fall. The colors, the cooler temperatures, and most definitely, the pumpkin pie. I love pumpkin pie!

So to get my kids excited about fall, I created this free printable fall harvest themed I spy game for kids. It celebrates the best of the fall season from corn and pumpkins to colored leaves!

The Benefits of I Spy Games for Kids

I Spy printables like this fall harvest 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.
