Clue Eye Spy
Clue Eye Spy is designed to improve your little one’s observation ability and problem solving skills. The game uses clues or object colour rather than letters to aid in the guessing of the mysterious object. Clue Eye Spy is simpler for younger children than the traditional version and is a great way to increase your child’s awareness of his/her surroundings.
This is a game with which many people are familiar but if you have never played it before you simply use the words "I spy with my little eye something that ....." Normally the I Spyer would choose to describe an item in the immediate vicinity such as "something that is big and blue" or "something which we eat for lunch" and the guesser would try to guess the object without further clues as they should be able to see the object clearly. To expand upon this activity you could broaden the subject area beyond the immediate vicinity and ask your little one to use both their memory and their imagination to place the Eye Spy Game in various locations. For example the I Spyer could say "I spy with my little eye something with a long neck which lives at the zoo" and the guesser would obviously guess a giraffe. Alternately you may express the location out loud for example "Imagine if we were in the bathroom and I spy something which is yellow and says quack". Note: The better your little one is at playing this game the fewer clues they will require.
