We thought it would be fun to have a family movie marathon featuring the Spy Kids movies and some stealthy spy crafts to go along with it! The kids thought these spy kits were so much fun to make! Since the Spy Kids movies are streaming on NETFLIX, it was easy to plan our family movie marathon without having to leave our own living room! A special thanks to NETFLIX for sponsoring today’s creative family movie marathon theme!

What to Make Together:
Most of the components for this Pretend Spy Kit can be found at your local dollar store or you may already have them at home!
For a fun time, create a disguise kit for pretend stuffed animal “spies”! You’ll want to change their appearance so their true identities will never be discovered, otherwise their top secret missions could be compromised. *gasp*
This Top Secret Writing Center was a huge hit with my kids (ages 6 and 10)! They spent an entire afternoon coding, writing, and trading secret messages back and forth.
My kids had such a great time with this spy laptop made from an empty baby wipes case. It led to an entire afternoon of typing in pretend code, transferring top secret files, and downloading new missions!
This nature activity is a great way to keep the kids engaged in outdoor play, and you may be able to do this right in your own backyard! My kids loved pretending to be “leaf detectives” to explore which leaves come from which trees. Great imaginative learning fun!
