Se7en + 1 Create Quick and Easy I SPY Pages…

November 17th, 2012 · 12 Comments

After weeks and weeks of being under the weather we are starting to get our craftiness back in hand and this week our children got stuck in and made themselves some I SPY photographs…


My kids absolutely love and adore Eye Spy books… honestly I love them just as much as they do!!!

Just the names of the books: I Spy Ultimate Challenger: A Book of Picture Riddles and their ears prick up… a challenge, with picture riddles – how fun!!!


And our library has hardly any of them, so they decided to create their own…

In Se7en quick steps:

  1. Pick a theme… we had artefacts, games, beach, explorer, chef and artist… they were ready to do a whole heap more!!!
  2. DSC_0038 DSC_0037 DSC_0089 DSC_0095

  3. Choose an almost blank background, like a tray or a beach towel…
  4. DSC_0040 DSC_0042

  5. Go on a scavenge around the house to find at least twenty related items…
  6. Place them on your background… arrange and re-arrange!!!
  7. Then photograph them…
  8. Print them out…
  9. Compare and admire them… these would make such a great gift book…
  10. And the se7en + 1 th step…

  11. You might want to keep a little reward handy for this step else it will never get done: put away all the things you unpacked for your photograph!!!
