Mama May I Explore? Why, yes…Most definitely!
Eye-Spy with My Little Eye…is a game I often go to when we are out and about and I need some cooperation. There is something magical about surprises…about finding things you weren’t expecting…about seeing the world, actually seeing the world, when you look out upon it. There is something enchanting about taking notice of things – the big and the small – life’s little details. Boring be the walk without conversation, investigation, or play. My little explorer loves findings things. She loves to discover new sights, sounds…and to collect little treasures from our journeys.
Give your little adventurer the satisfaction of play with purpose in this magical exploration – a traditional game – a scavenger hunt - with some hidden learning built in. Enjoy the journey as a single, a duo, or group – taking in sights and sounds and searching for the magic of everyday things – “hidden” in plain sight.
Though anyone is welcome to participate in this magical find-me game, I have found 4+ to be the perfect age for actually getting excited to play the “game” – trying to find the things on the cards; collecting treasures; drawing findings; and investigating our surroundings. Played as a group, however, this makes the perfect something for family fun night - walks…talks…and exploration, because you can play at any age or skill level.
