Materials needed: no materials to prep, play this game within your house or even places in the neighborhood

Activity directions:

  1. Take turns picking out one item in the room to describe; don’t tell the other player the name of the item!
  2. Using the parameters of the game ‘I Spy’ use salient features to describe an item
  3. Features one can use include: an object’s function, its physical description (color, size, texture,) the letter the item starts with or its location
  4. Guess the child’s item he/she is describing!

Helpful tips: You can verbally prompt your child if she/he is having difficulty initially; ask question such as, “What would I use this thing for?” or “What’s it made of?” while trying to fade those questions after several turns
