Dover Books has tons and tons of clip art stuff available:

you can also get samplers every week for free if you subscribe. I haven't gotten any spam from this, either. just an impressive collection of clipart as I get around to opening and saving it.

Good luck!

Faking a crime sounds like a great idea! I think I might fake that half of their presents have been stolen so they would have to use some of the detective/spy gear to track down the rest of the goods.

Thanks for the great idea!!!

Actually, my going to DC & intentions of visiting the International Spy Museum is what inspired the idea. But gift shops can be pretty pricey, so I was trying to anticipate alternatives.

Thanks for the suggestion, though!
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / How can I turn my nephews and niece into spies this Christmas? on: October 20, 2007 01:46:15 PM
So, for Christmas this year, I'd like to give my nephews and niece a big parcel of Spy Themed goodies. Trouble is, aside from some good books on the subject and maybe sunglasses and flashlights, I'm a bit short on ideas of what to give them. I'd love some help and suggestions.

The kids are between the ages of five and eleven.

Last year, I did a pirate theme. We wrote a series of clues, with an initial for each child who would solve the clues (so the youngest had as much opportunity as the eldest), eventually leading up to a box painted up to look like a treasure chest. inside the box, aside from gold tinsel and foil wrapped candies, each got a small wooden chest with a couple of personal gifts inside, including drawn charicatures of each child as their piratey altar-ego. it was a roaring success, I daresay, but a lot of work to pull off.

So, what are some simple crafts and toys that can work for the spy theme? I'd prefer to avoid franchises and movies, if possible.

Thanks!!!

I'm sorry! I didn't think he was generating interest anymore, so I'd pulled them. I will try and repost them this weekend.

Thanks for your interest!

Aw, shucks, thanks. I'm glad to make it seem easier. Just don't get intimidated if it looks a bit weird the first times you try it...

yeah...it freaked me out, too. it's strange that to make something beautiful it has to go through a really ugly phase.

although, come to think of it, we all do...the human fetus starts out a bit scary looking...

Thanks much for the praise!

I check this topic every day with the hopes that someone will start a thread about a Diana wynne Jones swap... I love Howl that much.

Have you suggested someone start a Howl's Moving Castle/Diana Wynne Jones swap here?--
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=92.0 Maybe someone on there would bite.

I'm uber excited because the carrot red mohair I ordered to make a wig for my second doll has just arrived--but I can't work on her more yet, because I promised to make my folks some presents for Christmas (I'm celebrating Christmas in January--so technically, I'm not late). Pout. I don't want to draw bluebirds or make business cards so much as I want to futz with my sewing machine.

Thanks yet again for all your kind compliments! Merry Christmas a few days late...
