The idea we went with is the mystery of the missing presents (recurring theme in most ideas I found). The kids will have to find clues to find out who stole the presents and earn prizes along the way. I chose to do this by picking out 8 classic scooby villians whose "lairs" the kids will have to pass through to follow the foot prints of the culprit. Each villian they pass has a clue about the culprit but the kids have to earn it by playing that villian's game. More about this later. First the 8 villians I chose are:
1. Creepy clown ghost
2. Old Iron Face
3. The Black Knight ghost
4. The Creeper
5. Mr. Hyde
6. The Headless Ghost
7. Captian Cutler's Ghost
8. The Spooky Space Kook
I looked up info about these villains and their episodes, then came up with a game to match.
1. Get a half sheet of poster board for each villain except the black knight
2. Draw one villain on each sheet (except black knight and headless ghost)
3. Paint them all
4. Write in the challenge
5. Attach the clue envelope.
~just cut a normal size envelope in half, tape the cut sides, write "clue #__" on it and tape to poster, opening flap facing out~
** choose a person that will be at the party to be the villain IE: mom or dad. We used Kaiden's father as the villain. Come up with clues that fit that particular person like their height, age, or tshirt color. You will need 7**
Write the clue on a small piece of paper and put in envelope. (my clues are listed later in this 'ible and I have typed in bold print the word you need to change to fit your villain if you use my clues.)
These will be taped up around your venue in the area the game is to be played
I made footprints to lead the kids from game to game in the order I wanted.
1. get 2 sheets neon green poster board
2. print a footprint template and cut it out
3. trace it on the poster board as many times as possible (I got 60 feet total)
4. cut the prints out
It was windy out the day of our party so I bought a pack of long nails and used these as stakes to pin the prints to the ground so they wouldnt blow away.
