Somewhere on the vast world wide web, I saw someone selling these 'I Spy bags' for $22 bucks! I thought they were really cool and like a true crafter, I decided I could easily make my own. It took me less than half an hour. I dug out little trinkets from my overflowing button jar and used tablecloth vinyl for the window. Poured in some rice and voila! A Christmas present for my son. Ugh. Now that I look at the picture the corners are going to bug me. I'll have to fix them up.

So what ages might this be appropriate for? My son is 3 and I think he'll like it, but what about elementary ages? Any thoughts appreciated.

Well I'm 26 and I was playing with one of the old school kind (baby food jar/birdseed/trinkets) last week at my Endocrinologists office.

Let's put the FUN back in dysfunctional!!

Maybe you could put in alphabet beads so they have to find words to spell. Or you could cater the contents of the bag to the interests of the child so have a little model spiderman in there or something.

I made one for my 7 year old niece and she likes it.  Very cute.  Nice job.

Great job! And for ages: I have a 9, 6, 4, 2 & 1 year olds and they ALL love them, the older ones especially like helping the younger ones find things in it!
