Kids can become their own favourite secret agent in just a few moments by making secret agent crafts. The projects are simple and kids can do most of the work on their own and the supplies may already be lurking around the house. The crafts only take a few minutes, but children will be entertained for hours--spying on you, of course.

Keyhole Spy Tool

The keyhole spy tool is a real tool that spies used to use before there were fibre-optic devices to look through keyholes. To make the keyhole spy tool you will need a very small clear marble, thick black construction paper, tape and scissors. Cut the black paper the diameter of the marble and eight times as long as the diameter of the marble. Wrap the paper very tightly around the marble and tape in place. Push the marble to one end of the tube, so that half of it is sticking out. It can now be used like a mini telescope to look through keyholes and into other tiny spaces.

Secret Writing

Secret writing only requires white paper, a white crayon, a paint brush, and watercolour paints. With the white crayon, write a message on the white paper, the message can be anything your child likes. To see the message, brush water colour paint over the entire piece of paper and the message will appear through the paint.

Secret Agent ID Card

To make a secret agent identity card, you will need an index card and markers or coloured pencils. Have your child create a secret agent alias, by combining your last name with the name of a pet or by using a family member's first name and your favourite flower. The secret agent name can be anything they like. Use symbols to represent their birthday, address and telephone number. Print their real name on the back and use a paper clip to attach to your child's shirt.

Hieroglyphic Messages

To create hieroglyphic messages, you first need a key that will help translate the symbols used back into words. On a piece of paper, have your child create symbols that stand for each letter of the alphabet and for numbers 0 through 9. The symbols can be pictures, shapes or designs that will represent letters and numbers. Have your child write a message using the symbols and make sure the receiver has the key to decipher the message.
