Years ago ikat bag shared a mystery birthday party that she and her daughter concocted for the daughter’s eighth birthday. It included a story about stolen vehicles, clues for kids to figure out, dossiers on the suspects and a letter from the culprit explaining what happened.
Originally the materials used in the party were personal (including photos of the author’s neighborhood, cars, etc.) but she eventually was able to create a party pack of printables that people can use to host their own mystery birthday party. It’s a few years old now but it looks like so much fun for kids who like solving mysteries, escape rooms, etc.
