I Spy Pouch

I've seen a few different versions of these I Spy bags floating around and thought how fun it would be to make some for the kids to have while we're waiting at the dentist office, karate lessons, older kids sports events, church.....  you get the picture right?

These are so simple to put together. Here is what you need for this project:

Binder pouch-Walmart for .97 cents
Plastic Pellets-Hobby Lobby-in the doll making section for $3.99/bag
30 or more small objects-you can find a lot in your kids junk drawers:)
Hot glue gun

After collecting all of the small objects, I laid them out onto a piece of white paper and took a picture so I could print this out as a picture key of what to find.

Fill the pouch with all your small goodies and pellets. One bag of these pellets will almost fill two pouches.
Zip up the pouch and put hot glue along the whole zipper so it can't be opened.

Along with putting glue onto the zipper, I took some ribbon and glued it over the zipper so you couldn't see the zipper anymore.

Print out your picture of the objects and laminate for durability. I also made a written list and placed it on the back before laminating. Use a binder ring to attach to pouch.
