Step 4: After you have filled the right hand side with your favorite stickers, it’s time to make the checklist of items to “spy” on the left hand side. Repeat these steps until you have completed your book.

Step 5: Have your family and friends work their way down the list of items to “spy” and check off the boxes as they work their way down the list. See who can find the most items!

We hope you enjoyed this craft! My children gifted their book to their grandparents. It was sweet to watch them spend time with them as they went through the book together. This would be a fun activity to do at a birthday party, put in goody bags, or take with you on a road trip.
