The challenge

Step 1

To begin, one person sees (or spies) a 3D object, such as a cylinder, cube, cone, prism or sphere, and keeps it a secret. The object must be something that all other players had the opportunity to see.

 
 
 

Step 2

When you have spotted your object say "I spy with my little eye, something that is a cone”.

 

 
 
 

Step 3

The other players in the car now have to try and guess what the 3D object is that you’re seeing. The correct guesser gets to ‘spy’ something next. To support players, the person setting the challenge can provide hints as needed.
