youcubed: I Spy (all ages)

Many of the games we play to pass the time can be easily modified to integrate some math.

For example, you can play ‘I spy’ around the house and on your walks using maths. Can you find items in the shape of math symbols? What about other shapes you know? Can you count how many items in the room meet the ‘I spy’ criteria given? In the video, we also mention some variations to the license plate game.
