If you’ve ever been in a long car ride, you might have played “I spy” with your fellow passengers (if you managed not to annoy each other to the point of tears). If you’re not familiar with this game, you play “I spy” by describing something that you see to the opposite player. However, you cannot give the actual name of the object away; it’s up to your partner to guess which object you have picked. So instead of “cloud,” you might say “something white” or “shaped like a porcupine” instead.

One of the greatest things about “I spy” is that you can play it anywhere. The best time to play would be at a place where you’d normally spend an inordinate amount of time waiting, such as at the doctor’s office, in the kitchen while cookies are baking, or in line for a ride at Disneyland.

If you’d rather not find your own objects to “spy,” we have plenty of “I spy” types of books at the library. You can search for them on your own through the library’s catalog by typing “picture puzzles” as a keyword search. Of course, we’ve already pulled a sample for you – see below!
