My boys LOVE pretending they are spies, so today we are having a "spy day". As a surprise, I went to the dollar store yesterday, and I purchased supplies for three super-fun dollar store spy kits.
Can you believe I put each kit together for under $8? My boys LOVE them! Here's what each spy kit includes:
Zipper bag (to hold the contents of the kit) - $1.25
Label for front of bag - $0.19
Stick on moustaches (for the perfect disguise) - $1.00
Spy notebook (for writing down important clues) - $1.00
Passport cover - $1.25
Magnifying glass - $1.00
Secret agent ID (printed at home and placed in a dollar store self-
laminating pouch) - $0.25
Sunglasses (for the perfect disguise) - $1.25
Laser beam (finger light) - (4 for $1.00) - $0.25
Jar of lemon juice and a Q-tip (for writing secret messages) - (6 jars for $1 and a full jar of lemon juice for $1) - $0.25
Don't you just love how easy and inexpensive this idea is?
For the kits, I created adorable spy IDs on my computer. I printed them, cut them out, and put them in laminating pouches from the dollar store. This is what they looked like:
I also made simple "top secret" labels for the front of the zipper bags. If you right-click on the picture below, you can save and print a 4X6 copy.
This kit is fun for an afternoon of imaginative play at home, a themed playdate, or birthday party. Do you have a child that would love this dollar store spy kit?
