Winter may be the cozier time of the year, but when your kids are stuck inside for so long, they kind of start feeling bored.
Have you been there?
We all have. That’s why I created this fun Winter I Spy printable so you can entertain them on those snowy days!
We play I Spy very often because it is super simple to set up, and you need very few materials that you may already have at home, like paper and coloring pencils.
Just print a copy, grab your colors, and snuggle up with some hot cocoa for a homey indoor activity with your kids.
You can also use this free printable at your holiday party, your classroom, your church, or on a long car ride.
We find it particularly useful on winter break.
And the best part is that this game is also educational!
Your kids can not only practice their counting skills but also improve their visual perceptual skills, which will help them interpret what they are seeing.
Nothing like a fun and educative game!
Let me show you how to use and download it down below.
By the way, I have designed a Christmas I Spy that can also come in handy for this season.
Winter I Spy Game
To start playing this game, first, download it at the bottom of this post.
Then, print it on regular white paper. Keep in mind that the printing size is A4, and if you want to print it on a different one, you’ll have to select Fit Page on your printer settings.
You can use this page on its own, or laminate it if you plan to reuse it. This step is very convenient for teachers who can save ink every year.
Now it’s time to play.
Give your children their Winter I Spy along with some colored pencils, markers, or crayons, and start counting.
To help them keep track as they count, make them color the items as they find them.
Once they have discovered them all, make them write the number on the checklist at the top of the page.
There are more than ten different wintery items hidden throughout the page.
Let your kids find them all!
P.S. If you are working with older kids, you can make it a competition. Just set a timer to see who finds most of the items the fastest.
