Mystery Party/Spy Party Food Ideas:
Finger foods work great for this party. Or make it a mystery...
Make a menu out of mystery items: "Slippery snakes" (spaghetti), "Rabbit food" (carrots), "Brown Cow" (choc milk), "Pitch" (Fork), "Folded stainer" (Napkin), etc.
Have kids choose 5-7 items (have at least 10 total items). Then you serve them exactly what they
ordered. If they failed to ask for a Pitch, then they eat without a fork! Tons of fun!
Mystery Party/Spy Party Games and Activities:
Search for the cake game: Hide clues around the house and make them search for each clue (Example: Chickens do make them, be careful don't break them, go look and be bold, where it's chilly and cold).
Then they guess eggs and look in the refrigerator for the next clue and so on. On the back of each clue slip write a letter.
all clues are found, the letters on the back are unscrambled to lead them to where the cake is.
Serve cake and ice cream.
Flashlight tag - divide into teams. Everyone on the team that is "it" needs to tag everyone on another team. Have a very dark area where kids can hide a little.
Rotate till all teams have had a chance to be it.
A Scavenger Hunt! Print out clues and have your detectives go in search of the items you asked for! Can also be used to have them hunt for the birthday cake.
Take digital pictures of the guests and print them out in black and white. Have the kids create disguises on their pictures to hide their true identity!
