DIY: I SPY / MATCHING/ SOUND GAME

Jasmine of Three Minute Montessori shared her DIY I Spy/ Sound Game last January, and her post gave me an idea to make our own using what we have at home.

WHAT I USED:
* Reusable Water Bottle we don’t use
* Our miniature animals (THIS and THIS, also available locally via The Parenting Emporium)
* Beads

HOW WE PLAY IT:
* We simply shake and play I-spy.
* I have a basket for one set (from the Wild set), then ask my son to look for their babies (from the Zoo Babies set). It’s another kind of matching work.

Back story: I first put them in a glass frame like this. I have a few of these that I don’t use. But my son got so fond of shaking that he dropped the frame hoping to make it sound louder, so we ended up with shattered glass. LOL.

YOU CAN ALSO…

* Play sound games here. [Can you look for something that starts with /m/?] – this is for children a bit older.
* Use it for language skills in terms of colors, shapes, sizes, patterns, etc.
* Use it for counting [If you have several of the same miniature, say you have 10 pieces of apples, you can put them in there and use this as a tool for counting.]

Just use what you have (your language objects will really come in handy – You can check out the miniatures of Safari LTD – Toobs!) and have fun!
