Summer Road Trip Eye Spy

Well it’s that time of year again!  Summer holidays!
We do a fair amount of driving in the summer with our family a few hours away, and this means road trips!
And as you may know, road trips can be a bit tiresome with little ones!
I always tell them to play eye spy, but it’s never much fun for very long, and truth be told,
I hate playing eye spy.  I know that’s bad, isn’t it?!
In the car I just want to read, look out the window or actually have a conversation with my husband!
– – – –
So what about their own Eye Spy game?
One they can do on their own, or with their sibling(s)/friend/any willing participant!
This list can be used over the course of the summer, or for each trip!

If you wish to use it, just drag it on to your desktop and print!

And in case you missed it, I also put together a 
Summer Fun List with some activities for the holidays!

Happy road-tripping!
