Party Recap

My daughter is very into spy gadgets and mysteries, so when she said she wanted a spy party for her 7th birthday, I new the 007 theme would be perfect!

We invited about 25 junior agents to Spy Headquarters (our church gym) to solve a mystery - a bomb had been hidden somewhere in the room, and agents had to complete a series of missions before they could find the bomb. At the end of each mission, they received a clue; when they put their clues together, they were able to locate the bomb ... a redecorated pinata which when destroyed yielded a reward!

Party Highlights

  • Activities / Games

    Kids had to complete four missions in order to receive clues which led them to a hidden bomb. The bomb was a baseball pinata; I pulled off the frilly stuff, painted it black, and attacked a rope fuse with red ribbon at the end. The bomb was stuffed with plastic glasses, jewels, and small magnifying glasses. Missions included donning disguises (with photo taken - photo will be used on new ID card, to be mailed with thank-you notes), finding hidden items in homemade I-Spy jars, navigating a laser field, and completing an obstacle course. Since guests completed the missions at various rates, we had coloring pages, a personalized word search, mazes, and a craft project available to occupy their time.

  • Party Favors

    Magnifying glasses, I-Spy cake pops, fake mustaches, silly disguise glasses, eyeball rings, mystery flavored Dum-Dum lollipops, mustache lollipops, and packs of giant Smarties.

  • What People Ate

    Mystery bars (mini Hersheys variety pack with personalized labels), "on the trail" mix, mini-chocolate bombs (small chocolate donuts with a red twizzler "fuse" in the center), and birthday cake. We also had bowls of red gumballs and red sixlet candies around the room.

  • What People Drank

    Truth Serum (small bottles of water), Secret Spy Potion. For the potion, I used sprite and cranberry Sierra Mist, and we sprinkled pop rocks in the top to make it bubble.

  • Desserts

    Birthday cake - tiered cake (bottom layer white cake, top layer chocolate) decorated to match our color scheme: tan with red and black accents. Mustaches and fingerprints adorned the cake, along with a magnifying glass (the birthday girl's request) and some large dark glasses. Finally, BB Cakes made seven tiny fondant bombs with candle tips poking out the top.
