This free pet themed I spy printable for kids is a perfect way to work on a variety of skills!

Lately my kids have been trying to convince me that we should get a pet snake. That would be the last pet I would want, to be honest!

I much preferred J's phase of asking for a pet bunny because well, bunnies are freaking adorable. But then I remember my husband's evil pet rabbit, who was lovingly named Devil Bunny, that he had as a teenager and it's a hard no to a pet bunny too.

So maybe my kids will settle for this free printable pet themed I spy game for kids instead?

Yeah, I doubt it too...

They'll still be asking for that pet snake...shudder...

The Benefits of I Spy Games for Kids

I Spy printables like this pet 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.
