Set the stage for an exciting escapade by printing invitations on parchment-like paper. Use an online map like Google Maps to print out a map of the streets surrounding your house and mark its location with an X. Print or color copy a map for each child and include it with his or her invite, indicating that X marks the start of the adventure. You can even instruct kids to bring a backpack to carry their exploring gear. Mail the invitations in a classic red, white and blue air-mail envelope and have your child write the words “top secret” on each one.
Throw a birthday party that's more fun than a three-ring circus.
