Whether you’re looking to entertain your children on a long car ride to Grandma’s house or need something to keep them occupied on a cold afternoon at home, these I Spy Christmas books are the perfect way to keep them engaged!
We LOVE these holiday search and find books and I think your children will too!
I spy Christmas books
I Spy Christmas by Walter Wick
In my opinion, this is the ultimate. The photographs are stunning and detailed and you could spend literal hours on this one (maybe even days if you do the extra challenges at the back of the book too!). I grew up on I Spy Christmas and my love for it hasn’t faded a bit. (The I Spy A Christmas Tree version is perfect for littler searchers).
The Night Before Christmas Look and Find
Surprisingly, there isn’t a Christmas version of Where’s Waldo, but this is a very similar style with all the Christmas symbols you could ask for hidden in these super detailed images.
Twas the Night Before Christmas: A Highlights Hidden Pictures® Storybook
My girls LOVE the Hidden Picture challenges in their monthly Highlights magazines and so a whole book of Christmas themed ones? They are IN.
Can You See What I See?: The Night Before Christmas by Walter Wick
By the same author as the original I Spy Christmas, the scenes in these books will blow you away and then suck you in for hours of searching for hidden objects.
The Lost Christmas by B. B. Cronin
My girls were obsessed with his first book (The Lost House) and finding the objects in each beautifully drawn page and this one is possibly even better with colorful holiday scenes and ornaments to find on each page.
Christmas Treasure Hunt by Roger Priddy
This chunky board book is ideal for your littlest readers who don’t want to be left out of the fun. On each page, it encourages you to find the odd thing out or two of a kind and a cuddly teddy bear is also tucked into each picture.
