Dinner Kid Murder Mystery Party
Hosting a dinner kid murder mystery party is fun, as long as it is
age appropriate. Party games are available that recommend children
be older than the age of eight to engage in this type of event,
though the ultimate decision is up to you as a parent.
When planning this party, make sure that the menu and decor is kid
friendly, as with any childs theme party. Also, consider enlisting
the help of another parent so you have a second opinion as to what
may or may not be suitable for this age group.

Having a Dinner Kid Murder Mystery Party
If you decide to have a dinner and murder mystery party for kids,
you have three options; you can buy a murder mystery board game and
play out the scenario; download an online game and guide; or gather
some ideas and create your own theme.
Some of the more popular themes are Harry Potter, class reunion,
death by chocolate, the Santa Clause, Halloween, and Luau murder
mysteries. Each scenario has an age recommendation, tells you the
number of players the game is for, and the gender for which the game
is most appropriate, if applicable.

Decorations and Costumes
A dinner kid murder mystery party is always more fun when you invite
guests to dress up, as it helps to set the mood for the evening.
Girls can wear boas, sequin gowns, and hula skirts while carrying
around powder compacts, clutches, and leis. Fake mustaches, cowboy
hats, and magician capes are some of the outfits for guys while
accessories might include cob pipes, a lasso, and a wand.
The decor is equally important since it makes the game seem more
real and assists the players in getting into character. For a 1920s
theme, hang up black and white prints, play some jazz or big band
music, set up a bar, and make some prohibition signs. Harry Potter
theme decorations should be easy to come across since the movie and
books are such a wide spread phenomenon. Make your house look like
Hogwarts, the Forbidden Forest, or Harrys England home and create
special affects with lighting, sounds, a fog machine, or bubbles.
For holiday theme parties, try to have them during the actual
holidays so that the décor is already on display, giving you one
less thing to worry about.

The food for the party should coincide with the theme but with kids,
this is not always an easy task. Some kids are very particular about
what they eat, teen girls may only want salads, teen boys might
desire pizza, and there could even be a vegetarian in the group. To
satisfy everyones demands, put out a meat, a vegetable, and some
carbs in addition to a variety of snacks.
- If you opt to have a 1920s party, the setting is most
likely to be a diner, so serve such foods, such as hamburgers,
chicken wings, mashed potatoes, milkshakes, French fries, chips,
pretzels, soda, and water.
- Harry Potter doesnt really have any special foods
other than the snacks on the train, which include Bertie Botts
jelly beans, Fizzing Whizbees, and chocolate frogs, but you can
make some traditional English
dishes like bangers and mash or beef casserole and
sprouts. Have the party guests create their own recipe for
Butterbeer and rate everyone's favorite.
- A dinner kid murder mystery party
with a luau theme requires little more than hot
dogs, hamburgers, some grilled chicken, corn, and a salad or try
a more traditional Hawaiian
- Homemade Pizza
and a Mystery Party. Have your party guests make their own
pizzas before playing the mystery game.
- Work a restaurant scene into your mystery party and
order and have the kids help with the cooking, waiting and
eating at the restaurant.
Setting up a dinner kid murder mystery party can be tough, so its
ok to enlist some help with the decor, menu, and how to keep the
killer a secret. You may need assistance in determining the cast and
the seating arrangements, depending on the theme and the guidelines
that come with the game. Planning with someone else is also a lot
more fun, less stressful, and you can feed off one anothers
creativity, allowing you to throw a great party.
