Saving my rain soaked birthday party, Secret Agent/Spy Treasure Hunt review

For any parent who has planned a large, outside party, there is one world that will instantly put fear in your heart, RAIN. I've been there. You have 50 kids and parents coming to your house and the heavens are about to unload a flood. You panic, sweat and possibly swear a little. The idea of having all those kids running inside your house could drive you to drink.

Luckily I had a back-up plan in my pocket, Secret Agent/Spy Treasure Hunt game.

My kids love pretend. I am often amazed what their imaginations can create. One of their favorite games is secret spy. When I found this game from party, I thought that it would be great as my party backup plan.

This game is printable so you can adapt the game to your number of guests. Also, the hunt is designed to be played almost anywhere. No special locations or equipment is needed. Kids must solve the various clues to uncover the treasure. From decoding clues to performing fingerprint analysis, the kids must work together to meet their goal.

Since the host decides the hiding locations, you decided the difficulty level.  We used a somewhat easy hiding place because we had younger children. The kids enjoyed playing and asked if we could play another time.

These Secret Agent/Spy Treasure Hunt cards are great for summer vacation too. I don't want to hear the phrase "Mom I'm bored". These fun activities are good to keep the kids minds active during summer vacation. Following the clues can help with cognitive leaning and problem solving. No more mush minds.
