Who doesn’t love a fun game at Christmastime? And as you can see, we are fond of games at Bronner’s! Our “I SPY” post is brought to you as the “2nd day of Christmas” in Bronner’s “12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS IN JULY!”
I Spy Christmas is a great game for children of all ages. Whether in print or oral form, the game is a great way to sharpen your observation skills.
“I spy with my little eye” originated in Victorian England. Indeed, the game was first mentioned in 1889 in The Manchester Times.
In the interactive, oral version of the game, the “spy” picks an object he can see, and the other players try to guess what it is. (Surely, many of us grew up playing this version of I Spy in the car during family trips.)
In similar fashion in the print version, the player searches the page for hidden objects. To be sure, you can play the print version independently or as a group with the first person to find all the objects declared the winner.
We loaded our I Spy Christmas activity sheet with Christmas icons – from candy canes and candles to snowflakes and Santas!
