Mystery Birthday Party
My 9 year old daughter is so into spies, detectives and mysteries. So we decided to have that theme for her birthday celebration this year. The invitations came in folders with the party details. At the beginning of the party, each child received a detective kit consists of a magnifying glass, a note book ( I had 'top secret' printed on white paper and made this the cover ) and a pencil. These were used in the games where they had to decipher codes, read facts in minuscule fonts and test their concentration in the memory game. After completing the training and being awarded 'junior detective' badges, the kids had to solve the mystery in the form of a treasure hunt.
It was a lot of work but was all worth it.
