Your little detective guests will love this I Spy-themed party, from the "thumbprint" cookies to the blocks, jacks, trinkets and more hidden throughout your house.
To create an "I Spy" cake, try a homemade chocolate cake with butter cream frosting. Then cover your cake in rolled fondant with your favorite I Spy items, from dominoes to numbers to dice. You can hand mold your I Spy items with sugar paste or gum paste. To print an I Spy riddle directly on the cake, use small letter stampers with edible food coloring.
Who dunnit? These cookies have the clues you need! Bake and serve peanut-butter thumbprint cookies for your mystery-filled I Spy party. Get the recipe here.
For decorations, put I Spy displays throughout your house, and include riddles for the guests to solve!
Have kids inspect a tray of items, then see who can remember the most when it's out of sight.
Kid-friendly magnifying glasses make a fun discovery favor. Look for yours at a party store or a learning store like learningresources.com.
