My kids just love those "I Spy" books! (Ya know, the ones were each page has a huge picture and a list of things to find in the picture!!) So when I was trying to think of things to keep a group of  teens and older children busy I thought it would be a fun idea to have a "Catholic I Spy" for them to do! 

A few of my older kids and I had a lot of fun making the "I Spy scenes". It was fun seeing all the saint themed ideas that they could come-up with! I took the pictures, and my oldest daughter made the poems to go with each one (I helped a little.) 
 After we printed them out, I laminated them and they were ready to use.
(You could put them into plastic sheet covers, too.)
They are great for youth group gatherings, All Saints Day Parties, family reunions, car rides,  waiting rooms, and any other time you want to keep teens and older kids occupied. (Adults like them, too!!)

Have fun making your own or you can print out the ones we made.

  10. Hi inspired me to try my own! I think I have a number of Catholic I Spy to contribute to a link-up or a book. =)

  11. Oh, I love these!

    I have actually had a thought for the past few years that I have yet to put into action: I have waned to take photos of objects, stained glass window parts, etc around my parish church and, then, make I Spy cards for the kids to use during Mass. I know some don't advocate books,playing, etc. in Mass. I did not either until I had my specific chidlren. One struggles a lot at Mass, yet focuses on church decor and other visual things, so I thin these could help.

    I wrote a bit about our experiene with him at Mass at and at


  12. I still can't find the boot :-( I found everything else, though!!

  13. I'm so thrilled. I'm teaching science in a Catholic school and I wanted an I Spy image to teach accuracy vs Precision.

  14. thanks so much for these fantastic pictures. I'm using them in my Religious Education class.
