You don’t need much to use these printable I spy games!
- Paper or cardstock. I love using presentation paper for colorful printables. It’s a special heavyweight paper with a coating that makes images crisp and vibrant. A more economical, but still great-looking, choice is 32 lb premium printer paper. For a side-by-side companion of these papers and regular printer paper, check out this post on the best paper for printables.
- Laminator or dry erase pockets to make the games reusable (optional but recommended). You can also slide the pages into page protectors and place them in a three ring binder. We use page protectors with a flap to keep the pages in.
- Pencil, crayon, or markers
- Your free printables! (scroll down for the download links)
To play, have your child count how many of each picture appears in the frame.
Crossing off each image as it’s counted can help you child keep track of their progress.
Encouraging them to not cross pictures off can make the game more challenging for older children.

These printables are available free for personal and classroom use as long as it’s your own classroom. (Yes, leaving them for a substitute teacher to use is fine!) You’re also welcome to use them with your church group, scout troop, etc. Basically as long as you are personally organizing the event, it’s fine!
Please do not share the printouts or digital files with others for their use. Instead, send your friends and coworkers to this page do download their own copies!
This I Spy printable is available in two difficulties.
Both puzzles have the same cute Valentine’s Day images. If you like the images, be sure to check out these free printable Valentine’s Day coloring pages for kids! You’ll find some of the same images, like the llama with heart glasses, as coloring pages.
The first is easier with each picture used only once or twice. It’s perfect for children who are just learning their numbers. Older toddlers can even do this one with some help! (My daughter is so pleased with her ability to count two objects and loves this game.)
The second I Spy Valentines printable is slightly more difficult and better for children who are more advanced with the counting skills. Each image is included 2-4 times.
If you want even more low-prep activities, to keep your little one busy and learning grab both of these I Spy printables and over a dozen more activities in the Valentine’s Day activity bundle for just $3.99! You’ll receive activities for children from ages 2-12 with fine motor practice sheets, mazes, sudoku, and more!
