Hosting a mystery party for kids is fun. It’s one of those parties which kids would remember even after they grow up. Organizing a kids mystery party is not tougher than hosting a birthday party.
Now, every mystery party consists of a primary script, which determines a plot. Since the party is for kids, you normally don’t have “murder mysteries”. Themes include haunted places, stolen chocolates and lot of other innovative stuff that appeals a lot to children. It brings the same thrill as an amusement park.
Kids love having something to eat while they play. You can have things that you normally do for a birthday party (except the cake, but you can still include a cake).
It’s best to invest in a mystery party kit, that will have everything as far as the plot is concerned. You’ll have clues you need to give, as well as roles of suspects. Or else, you could write one on your own. But it could be a tough job depending on your background.
You should always check the age for which the mystery script is designed for. It’ll just add to the overall fun. Depending on the number of kids attending your party, you can choose scripts that cater towards more or less amount of crowd.
Kids love props. If a plot requires a kid to have say, a mobile phone, or anything like that, you could always draw it on a cardboard piece in the shape of a phone. Kids don’t require the real ones, and are equally content with such “fakes”. This adds to the kind of realism kids expect. They all want to behave like grown ups.
Apart from a normal kids party you host, a mystery party only has an added plot to it. So, you don’t have to get nervous about hosting one. All the kits come with full instructions on how to conduct the entire party. Try adding some spice of your own.
And remember the prop thing I told above. It really works wonders, and kids get a lot more happier than you imagine.
