Halloween I Spy- Spooky Seek And Find Books & Printable

Every October, my boys love hunting for Halloween decorations when we’re in the car or taking a walk through our neighborhood. This year, I’m having them do an entirely different – but equally fun – Halloween I spy activity! Keep reading to see my family’s favorite Halloween seek and find books. Then grab a printable Halloween hunt that your family can work on at home!

Have your kiddos test their seek and find skills with these fun and festive Halloween I Spy books. Then print out your own Halloween hunt and let the fun continue! #Halloween #Halloweenprintable #Halloweenactivities #HalloweenISpy #HalloweenSeekAndFind #SeekAndFind #ISpy

I Spy A Pumpkin

This edition is not entirely Halloween themed. I had to include it in the list though, since it has pumpkin front and center. The riddles were written by Jean Marzollo. All of the photographs were taken by Walter Wick. The riddles in this edition include photo prompts. This is great for very early readers. They can still participate even without understanding the words.

I Spy A Skeleton

Here’s another set of riddles and photographs from Marzollo and Wick. Like the pumpkin book, these photos are not entirely related to Halloween. There are more spooky pages in this edition than the pumpkin one though, so it’s a great choice for October. This edition also has the photo prompts, making it another great book for young readers.

I Spy Spooky Night

This third Halloween I spy book from Marzollo and Wick is the largest that we own. The photos are all related to spooky themes. The photographs in this edition are very detailed. Kids will easily find themselves drawn into the photos during their hunt. The riddles for this book are a bit more complex than in the smaller books. They do not include the photo prompts either. Children will either need to be able to read the text independently in order to solve the riddles, or work with an adult. My oldest definitely has some favorites in this book of Halloween I spy games. He finds the cemetery scene and the skeleton cloud extra creepy!

I created a fun Halloween I spy page for my son to work on at home. (You can grab your own copy at the end of this post!). It’s a simple, quick activity to keep your kids engaged. Children will need a copy of the Halloween I spy page, and something to color with. To complete their seek and find, kids simply color the Halloween objects according to the color listed. Color words are key sight words for young readers, so the opportunity to read each of them is great practice. Even younger children will benefit from some ‘clues’ before they start. Use the appropriate color on each of the Halloween objects across the top. With hints, young kids will be able to work their way through the Halloween I spy page fairly independently.
