The DIY I Spy Game!!
The inspiration for this game came from my 3-year-old son's love of I Spy books. A few months ago, I bought him an I Spy board book and he loved it! He has it memorized and, when we read, he won't let me get away with skipping any pages.
These are the cutest little books by the way. A step down from the regular I Spy books, they are perfect for preschoolers!
That got me to thinking about how much he would LOVE a real-life I Spy game. (And how easy it would be to teach him his entire Preschool curriculum without him ever knowing!)

In addition to colors, letters, numbers, shapes and sensory, this game also can be used to strengthen your preschooler's fine motor skills. To add a motor skill component, simply provide your child with a pair of these over-sized tweezers to use when retrieving items from their bin.
I was surprised by how difficult it was at first for my 3-year-old to use the tweezers. But each time he uses them he improves and I can see his motor skills improving!
Hudson LOVES his I Spy Game and I love how much he is learning. It's one of the easiest and cheapest school resources I have created so far.
