A Nancy Drew Birthday Party with a Mystery to Solve!

Nancy Drew Birthday Party

My little Nancy Drew fan has turned a decade old! Just like her mommy, she too loves the famous girl detective. And like all mystery-crazy kids, she is always on a lookout for a real mystery to solve. Well, guess what? She got to do just that on her 10th birthday!

That’s my little miss detective on the right looking for the last clue on the dark staircase. The photo reminded me of this cover photo of Nancy Drew’s ‘The Hidden Staircase Mystery’.

A Real Mystery to Solve

The plan for the party was to take the birthday girl with surprise. So after a lot of posing with kid themed props, cake and dinner, when it was time to hand out the party favors, the action began. The birthday girl found an empty box with no favors inside and only a note from ‘Captain Crook’:

This followed by the first clue. The kids were all handed ‘detective bags’ complete with caps and notepads personalized with words ‘The Clue Crew’ along with other stuff like flashlights, pens, magnifying glasses and candy bars. Since I had guests of all ages and did not want the younger ones to feel left out, most of the clues required team work. Check out all my clues and other details in this post.
