The best thing about I Spy is that you can play anytime, anywhere, without any special supplies. Stuck in traffic? I Spy. Waiting for your order at a restaurant? I Spy. Waiting at the doctor’s office? I Spy. Need some bonding time with your child? I Spy.
My 4-year-old loves it, and we have a lot of fun playing. Sometimes I suggest we play when I notice him getting in a funk. He acts out when we’re in need of quality time, and playing together is the best remedy.
I try to be prepared with activities, such as felt checkers, water painting, books, etc., when we go to restaurants or other places that involve waiting. Sometimes, though, I either forget or it was unplanned. I Spy is perfect for those situations!
What’s your favorite game to play with your kids?
