Interactive mysteries for kids

Interactive mysteries for kids

It was 27 years ago today (July 27, 1990) that we performed The Legend of Pandora’s Box for the first time! The client was the Oak Brook Park District.

It’s a children’s mystery designed for Grades 3-6, and it’s one of our most popular shows.

Children love a good mystery and we provide an interactive mystery that gets kids involved and thinking.

Mystery for kids

Our CHILDREN’S MYSTERY (Grades 3-6) starts with a short play, presented by professional actors, that outlines the “case.” (PLEASE NOTE: in keeping with family-sensitive values, there are NO murders in our children’s mystery programs – only good, clean, baffling fun!) The audience (up to 100) work in teams to solve the mystery. The children must solve riddles, puzzles and coded messages. They can also “buy” clues with Mystery Shop Investigation Bucks.

As much fun as our play offers, The Mystery Shop offers your children so much more:

Teamwork. Each child contributes toward a solution as part of a randomly chosen team.

Friendly competition. Teams compete against each other.

Observation and recall. Clues are hidden within the play so children will have to listen carefully and remember what they heard.

Decision-making. Clues and hints can be bought but there aren’t enough Mystery Shop Investigation Bucks to buy all the clues. The kids have to spend  carefully.

Deductive-reasoning. While the puzzles and riddles aren’t hard, they will take some thought and concentration.

Book your interactive mystery now by calling 630-690-1105 or e-mail at tms@TheMysteryShop.com.  We’ll be happy to “clue” you in!
