Make meal time more fun with your toddler with an I Spy placemat! They are easy to make, and a great way to use up bits and pieces in your stash. Have fun incorporating special fabrics for the toddler in your life. Sometimes, the placemats have another name: Eye Spy placemats.
What’s great about these placemats is that they are easy to fold up and put in your bag when you go out to eat, or visit Grandma — and they are machine washable! Make special holiday placemats to add festivity to the table!
An I Spy placement is similar to an I Spy quilt, but much smaller. Quicker to make and fun at mealtime! Pick fabrics with small images that can be identifiable. This is a perfect time to pull out those scraps or fat quarters of novelty fabrics that you just had to buy or save! Fussy cut around the designs to get just the pictures you’d like to be able to play I Spy. Don’t know how to play I Spy? See below for more information.

How to play I Spy with My Little Eye with an I Spy Placemat
Have fun at meal time playing I Spy with My Little Eye!
I spy a cat, do you? Can you find the apples? The owls? A butterfly? Take turns with each player picking something that everyone see. Whoever finds it first gets to pick the next object. As a child gets older, you and up the I Spy game by changing up the ‘I Spy’ to be something like “I Spy something that starts with a B” and see what the players come up with. You can play with letters, numbers and colors!
