This free Christmas themed I spy printable for kids features colorful candy canes and would be a fun advent calendar activity for kids or even a great stocking stuffer idea!

Candy canes are a classic Christmas treat. Although it has been years since I've actually enjoyed eating a candy cane myself!

However, my kids enjoy the occasional one during the Christmas season. So I thought it would be cute to make a free printable candy cane themed I spy game for kids.

It represents all different flavors from mint to cherry to orange. Maybe even dill pickle flavored? Yes, I'm not even kidding. I recently learned that there are dill pickle flavored candy canes. Now, I love dill pickles and can easily consume an entire jar in one sitting, but the thought of eating a dill pickle candy cane makes me want to gag! Seriously, who would try one?

The Benefits of I Spy Games for Kids

I Spy printables like this candy canes themed 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.
