Free Printable I Spy Camping Kids Activity

One of the best parts about camping is observing the world around you. This game is perfect for playing once you get to the campsite, or on the way to the campsite. To play, you’ll need some pencils and our camping-themed I Spy game printable.

You can play this a couple of different ways. First, just look for the number of each item and record it in the ledger.

Once you’ve finished finding all the tents, RVs, compasses, cameras, binoculars, thermoses, knives, first aid kits, and lanterns, see if you can find those same items around your campsite! You’re sure to find some of these things “in the wild,” so to speak.

What’s great about this printable is that even your toddlers and preschoolers can play along because it’s entirely picture-based. If your child can count to five, he or she can complete this camping I Spy game.

The Benefits of I Spy Games for Kids

I Spy games are a great way to help kids develop skills in observation, visual discrimination, pattern recognition, and following directions. These four things all help to build the foundation for reading comprehension and success in school. I Spies also have social benefits because they encourage problem solving and communication with others while developing individual responsibility.
