How to Make an I-Spy Game

So far, I have received some great suggestions and feedback in regard to the current craft challenge. (The clear tube challenge details can be found in this clear tube craft challenge blog post.) I found a little extra time this weekend, between remodeling our bedroom and attending a couple graduation open houses, to play around with one of the tubes a little bit. Here is what I came up with:

How to Make an I-Spy Game

It is a fun I-Spy game (suggested by Sarah S. in a comment in the blog post above) that kids will not only have fun making, they will have fun playing with it and challenging others to find the hidden items. This was so easy to make and I had a lot of fun trying to decide what to put inside of it.

Supplies You Need:

You can use a variety of small items as the objects to search for inside the tube. All of the items in my I-Spy game are actually beads. You can find a variety of beads in fun shapes either online or at your local craft store. You don’t have to limit yourself to just animal and item shaped beads, you can use numbers, letters, or anything else you like. You can also use charms or small toys (as long as they fit).

When you fill the tube, use a small funnel, or a piece of paper rolled like a funnel, to pour the rice in. Start out by pouring in a little rice, then add one of your I-Spy items. Continue alternating back and forth until your tube is about 3/4s of the way full. Once you are done filling your tube, run a bead of glue around the edge of the lid and put it in place. Let the glue dry before you allow kids to play with it.

Don’t worry if you don’t have a clear tube like mine, you can easily make your own I-Spy game using a plastic drink bottle or any other clear, plastic container. If you have an idea for a creative way to use one of these plastic tubes, make sure you share your ideas on the craft challenge blog post.
