I-Spy Jars

I-Spy Jars are a fun and affordable way to create a “grounding” technique tool for any and all ages. Whether you or someone you know is dealing with emotional dysregulation, or you just need a “brain break”, an I-Spy jar can help bring you back to the present moment or help you practice staying in the present moment. By focusing on finding the items hidden in the I-Spy jar, you are engaging your senses in the “here and now”.

I-Spy jars can also be used as learning tools. You can have a “theme” to your I-Spy Jar such as letters, colors, numbers, or shapes. This can be a fun way and hands-on way to help an individual learn. They will be having so much fun, they won’t even realize they’re developing important skills!

Items Needed:

Jar or bottle


Various small objects to hide inside the jar or bottle

Note card/paper to write list of items to find in jar or bottle

Optional: packing tape, dry erase marker
