*** As seen on Hostess with the Mostess ***
Have a budding detective on your hands? Then throw a mystery party for his or her next birthday! (This party works equally well for girls and boys.)
I styled this party with a Nancy Drew theme, but we can use any mystery you like:
- A to Z Mysteries

- Encyclopedia Brown
- Just ask about your child's favorite mystery series!
Your guests will solve The Case of the Purloined Party Favors:
- Search for clues
- Interview witnesses
- Crack a code
- Take fingerprints
- Lift fingerprints
- Catch the thief!
