Thanksgiving I Spy Game
I Spy is such a classic game – spotting things when you are out on a road trip, or just playing it at home when you can’t go outside. When I was a kid it would be verbal as you announced “I spy with my little eye something beginning with…” and everyone would take a guess.
This free printable Thanksgiving I Spy game takes it a little step further and can be played solo during some quiet time.
For competitive kids, set the timer and see how fast they can find all of the objects. Or race against another person to see who can find everything first!
How To Play Thanksgiving I Spy
The I Spy worksheet is split into two sections – the I Spy section has a jumble of different Thanksgiving-themed objects to look through and find and the answer section has the 15 objects that are in the jumbled part with a box next to it to record how many there are.
The answers are on a separate sheet.
Or you could play the game the other way around and use the answer sheet and look for the number of a particular object in the I Spy section and cross it off or draw a circle around it.
There are no hard and fast rules!
For parents, I Spy worksheets are a great boredom buster! Print a few copies and keep them stashed in your bag to pull out when you need the kids to sit still/be quiet! For example, waiting for an appointment.
They’re also great for taking on road trips, or when visiting relatives and the kids are complaining that they’re bored!
