Need a fun and simple kid’s activity that can keep them entertained while on a walk?
This neighborhood eye spy idea is perfect!
With everything going on lately, we’ve seen a few people talking about having their kids make pictures to display in their street-facing windows for other children to see while out on a walk.
We think that is a genius idea and when we saw this post floating around on Facebook we knew we wanted to help make this even easier to do with your kids.
In the post linked above are suggested ideas for the kids to make each week. Here’s how it’s broken down:
- Week 1: March 23rd – rainbows
- Week 2: March 30th – sunshine
- Week 3: April 6th – Easter
- Week 4: April 13th – animals
- Week 5: April 20th – flowers
- Week 6: April 27th – smiley faces
To help your kids participate in this fun mass eye spy game, we’ve created printable pages for each week!
Week 1, 2 and 5 have one picture to choose from while Week 3,4,6 each has two different pictures for your child to choose.
The way you choose to personalize them is 100% up to you and your family!
We think the crazier and more colorful the better!
Have them color them in with markers, crayons or paint. Or how about gluing scrap construction paper or tissue paper all over the pictures? Give them some glitter and let them go to town!
Look around your house and craft room for ideas and just let the kids’ imagination run wild.
The great thing about this project is that it’s great for a wide variety of ages. Little kids can do a scribble or two and call it done, while older kids can take their time and make it as detailed as they like.

Once your family has finished the weekly picture, tape it in a street-facing window for all the kids to see!
You can even make it educational by having the kids count the number of pictures they find along the way or talk about what they see in the pictures.
