Urban i-Spy

Do you remember those lovely old fashioned books of things to look for on a long journey?

I mostly entertain myself by looking for Worlds (see but what about a journey with kids.

In these modern times I have the following list for you to print out and use:

5 Points
Tailback of greater than a mile
Someone over 40 wearing a mini-skirt (can look good, you still get the points)
Aftermath of an accident
Underage smoker
Someone throwing litter out of their window
Missing hubcap / wheel trim
Man driving while wearing hat
Pregnant woman
Dog with head out of the window

10 points

Someone jumping the lights on amber
Fluffy dice
Flat hedgehog
Boarded up shop
Man with pony tail
Couple with matching anoraks
Car with fog lights on when it’s not foggy
Car with only one headlight working
bottom of dress caught in door and flapping

20 points

Dog actually doing a poo
Fat man on small moped
Workman’s cleft
Person who looks like their dog

50 points
Couple with matching sweaters
Seeing an accident happen
Person under 10 years old smoking



  1. LOVE it – and I know my granddaughter will to – we get sick of the usual I spy and colour I spy.
