What the Momma thinks……

Spot it! is super easy to understand for even my five-year old. We typically play as a family and I control the flip of the cards and let the kids rush to find the matching picture. Sometimes it is in a different position and sometimes it is a different shape. It is just so fun to watch them scramble and work their brains to find the right one.

Then they scream (or slightly loudly) say the matching symbol. Now of course they have a big smile of success on their face when this is done. Then we move on to the next. Though every once in a while someone is wrong and this makes it a lot fun. Hands go on the head, awes are said and giggles are to be had.

BUY IT: Spot it! is available from and Fat Brain Toys.
