I-SPY Road Trip Printables
Our Road Trip I-SPY Printable Game for Kids is ready for you to print at the end of this blog post
How to use I-SPY Printables
These I-SPY games are super easy to use, and while playing this printable game your child will be practicing their counting skills, as well as strengthening their visual skills.
On each printable I-SPY sheet, the kids have six different pictures to find. They will need to count up how many of each picture they can spot, and fill in the number in the box beside that picture at the bottom. Super simple!
If you pack a sticker book and some spare paper, siblings can even make their own I-SPY sheets for each other using the stickers. Ask each kid to stick a few different types of stickers onto their page, and then swap them over. This can keep them occupied in the back seat for even longer!

- I-spy colors (I spy with my little eye, something the color green….red… blue… and so on) – This version is easier for younger kids
- Rock paper scissors
- 007 – this is a variation on Rock Paper Scissors, which my boys love to play
- Make up a story where each person says alternating lines
- Guess the character – one kid thinks up a character in their mind, and the other children need to ask questions til they can guess the correct answer. My boys love to do this with Pokémon or footballers, and it will keep them busy for quite a while.
- Car singalong – let the kids request their favorite songs and they can stay occupied singing along
