Inspiring a Young Detective

My youngest son LOVES to play detective. He’s a Sherlock Holmes fan, and he enjoys trying to solve mysteries on his own. We searched high and low for a trench coat and detective hat, and lucked out with a nice coat from the thrift store and a Sherlock Holmes style hat from the dime store. With the addition of a mustache and Spy glasses (with secret rear-view mirrors), he is ready to take on any case that presents itself.

If you have a mystery-loving kid, check out the list of activities my junior detective enjoys, plus a free printable activity!

    This would have been me as a kid. I loved mysteries. Sadly, my daughter doesn’t care for them. Have you watched the Sherlock Holmes movies? Loved them.

    Our town has an annual “Mystery Weekend”. We’ll be attending this month for the first time.
