Super-Secret Scavenger Hunt
Scavenger Hunts are a fun way to get everyone up and moving (and giggling!). Did you know that scavenger hunts can not only be used as a fun group activity, but they can also be used as a learning tool? Create your own scavenger hunts catered to your child’s toughest subject to introduce an element of FUN, or grab a camera and have a photography lesson!

 

 

Create a Unit Study!

For the writing and reading enthusiast – why not create an entire unit study on Spies? (Spies of the Revolutionary War, anyone?) Notebooking & Lapbooking are excellent ways to display information! Check out our blog post on Lapbooking  and The Notebook Nook  for more inspiration!

Plan A Field Trip!
When in doubt, visit a museum! Our favorite source for all things spy related has to be the International Spy Museum in Washington D.C.! Don’t live near Washington D.C.? Take a virtual tour! (check it out here)

 

 

 

Start a Book Club!

There are literally millions of choices you could go off of to start a Spy Worthy book club. Our favorites? The Sherlock Holmes series by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh, and the kid-friendly classic series, The Boxcar Children by Gertrude Chandler Warner. Looking for something a little less mystery and a little more true to life? Check out Spy of Richmond by Jocelyn Green – a brand new fictional story about a civil war spy, in Green’s Heroines behind the Lines: Civil Wars series. (Releasing March 2015) Check it out here: http://www.jocelyngreen.com/

 

 

Create A Secret Code!
Two ways to play: Create a secret code with your kids that only you as a family understand, then leave nice messages around the house for each other to decipher – Or create a code using math or science answers that kids must work through to decipher the message!
