Serendipity Experience 86: Host a Spy Party!1:26 AM
For my son's 10th Birthday we decided to host a Spy Party, which proved a real hit!!
The excitement began with our "Top Secret Invitations" which were sealed in a Confidential, "for your eye's only" envelope. ( Unfortunately one child took this too literally and nearly missed the party as he concealed the invitation too well from his mother).
Of course we had to have Spy Themed food complete with "Detective Dogs", "Bomb Cupcakes" and a Fortune cookie which held secret messages. The "Truth Serum" cordial proved very popular with the more serious spy members.
Upon arrival each child was taken to "Spy Training Camp", where they were fingerprinted and inducted into spy school.
Each child was issued with a passport and then had to travel through ten mission posts, which included Code Breaking, Target Practice, Bomb Detonation ( water bombs of course!), Invisible Writing, Laser Evasion, Disguises and Memory Test.
The children loved the Detective Disguises game where they had to dress in a disguise and eat chocolate with a knife and fork before someone threw a six on the dice.
This, however, was nowhere near as popular as the Laser Evasion. I think they would have been happy just to spend the entire party crawling under the web of string that I set up in the hallway.
In all it was a highly successful party and a theme I would highly recommend for a party for 8 - 10 year olds.
