It only takes a little bit of prep for a whole lot of fun
Who doesn’t love playing I-Spy? Especially in the car, my kids are obsessed with this game – same way I was when I was a kid.
In this version, I’ve pre-made a “game board” filled with stickers to “I-Spy”. It’s the perfect way to play this inside AND with a holiday twist on it.

Three kids x many many Halloweens and yada yada yada I have a lot of Halloween stickers floating around my supply drawer.
I’m never quite sure what to do with stickers and I really don’t want them being stuck to my furniture or car window, so I decided this would work instead.
Here’s how I set up this easy Halloween activity:
- I started by rolling out the paper and hanging it on my wall with painter’s tape. I use painter’s tape because it’s made to be safe for walls.
- I put tons and tons of Halloween stickers over the wall – making sure to space them out and use a good variety.
- Then I handed a marker over to my daughter (4) and we started to play I-Spy.
This is how we played Halloween I-Spy
I gave her simple clues and asked her to circle the character when she found it. Things like “I see 7 candy corn” or “I see 4 pumpkins.”
She had a ball looking around the paper for the different stickers and really studying / noticing them. This was a chance to really see and view the stickers.
Is she learning anything by playing this?
Why yes, yes she is.
- Arm strength
- Hand-eye coordination
- Pencil grip
- Visual discrimination
- Counting skills
- Spatial awareness
Who know a bunch of holiday stickers and some wipe paper would end up being so much fun!
I’m so glad I set up this Halloween Activity
What a great way to use up holiday stickers AND make a fun activity at the same time.
