Aside from giving "hints" that include the actual answer, the banter back and forth between the two of them is outstanding.
This morning, in the midst of driving in a sea of white thanks to the awesome Michigan weather, we got a game going.
To set the scene, Jack is in the second row of the van holding his Tyrannosaurus Rex that he got at the store last weekend. He is currently obsessed with dinosaurs. Abby is in the very back with her Rainbow Dash Equestria Girl.
Jack: "I spy with my little eye something that is ... green ... and like the trees."As you can see, it doesn't take much to feel like a rock star while playing I Spy with these two.
Me: "The trees?"
Jack: "NO the BUSH. It's LIKE the trees."
Me: "Oh. So. The bush?"
Jack: "(As though I'm brilliant) Yeah!"
Abby: "I spy with my little eye something that is ... blue ... with rainbow hair ... and a cutie mark on her cheek ... with boots."So, if you're in the market for feeling good about yourself, come on over for a rousing game of I Spy -- you won't be disappointed.
Jack: "Umm ... (thinking hard) Rainbow Dash?"
Jack: "I spy with my little eye something that is ... like sharp teeth and pointy."
Me: "Your dinosaur's sharp teeth?"
Abby: "Okay, my turn! I spy with my little eye something that is ... red on her lips with hair that is blue and orange and yellow and skin that is blue."
Jack: "Rainbow Dash?"
Abby: "Well ... YES, but, Jack, it is actually the red on her lips so you have to say, 'Rainbow Dash lips.'"
Jack: "Rainbow Dash lips?"
