An I-spy coping tools that kids get to search for include getting creative and building or drawing something; represented by building blocks and coloring pencils. To symbolize exercise and moving, we used a trampoline, running shoes, yoga mat, and a bicycle. Musical notes and a guitar symbolize singing and making music. Laughter and being playful are symbolized with a big-smiled emoji and dice.
