This is the kids party idea you've been looking for.
Minimum effort, maximum fun, and plenty of forever-memories. 
Let's begin.

Kids Parties Are Tough... Right?!

Kids solving Lost Mummy puzzles
No matter what else you’ve got going on, the annual ritual of planning for, preparing for, and then throwing a birthday party that makes your kid feel like the most loved, most special, luckiest child in the world is a really, really big deal.

And trying to organize a location, invitations, decorations, party favors, food, a cake, activities, music, and so on can be a really, really big pain.

I know it’s a big decision and there’s always a deal of trepidation about throwing a party for your kids. The difference between getting it right and getting it wrong is almost too much to contemplate!

But I also know you want to throw an unforgettable party and I want to help you do just that. Here’s the best kids party idea I’ve ever found.

The Best Kids Party Idea: An Escape Room Adventure

We know, it’s hard to go wrong with the classic pizza + sugar + playtime formula… but dang it, it’s time for something new! It shouldn’t be so hard to throw a party that’s more fun, more memorable, more engaging, and just a bit different from the cookie-cutter ones.

So we put on our thinking caps, surveyed the audience, tested a few formulae in the lab, punched a random sequence of keys on the computer (actually, that might have been the office chimp), and reinvented the kids’ party!

The result? Our kids escape room games. They’re simply the best kids party idea you’ll ever find (and your party will look something like this). Maybe I sound full of myself, but 20,000+ happy parents can’t be wrong! We’ve sold tens-of-thousands of kids' escape room games, and dedicated hundreds of hours to master-crafting each one to absolute perfection. Every kit is designed to pack in as much fun as physically possible, while being dead simple for parents (for real, the games take 20min to set up), and the effort shows on your kids' smiling faces.

But there are more reasons than that to make your next kids' party an epic escape room adventure. Let’s list them off for you:

You'll Have Time For A Coffee

You’ll have much more time to do other things, given that you’ll be pulling off a mind-bogglingly amazing party with the absolute minimum effort.

Using a printable kit gives you the added bonus of being able to really enjoy the party yourself, rather than running around all stressed like someone who’s never thrown a kids’ party before.

For some of the people we’ve helped, that alone is enough of a win. If you’ve ever thrown a kids’ party and missed the whole thing because you were so busy trying to keep it running, you’ll know exactly what I mean.

You'll Save Serious $$$

You’ll have more money to spend on that thing your pride and joy really wants, as the party itself won’t be blowing the budget. If that doesn’t make this the best kids party idea ever, then I don’t know what will. (Intrigued, read the full run-down here).

Because let’s face it, party entertainment is EXPENSIVE! Unless you’re a ludicrously successful influencer or an evil dragon with a horde of gold, there’s not a chance that you can afford to hire out a fancy venue with entertainers plus premium snacks AND gifts every single year.

On the other hand, these escape room games for kids only cost $29. Boom! Entertainment sorted. Plus, it’s reusable, so you can play it again next year, or run the game for a different group. That leaves you with more fun money for what matters (snacks, am I right?!).

You'll Have Total Control, Easy

Edit the Lost Mummy with PowerPoint
You can edit the whole experience as much as you like, because your child deserves a party as unique as she or he is.

So we have deliberately factored in that flexibility to allow for creative input from awesome party planners like you!

Using a super simple PowerPoint editor, you can put your own creative spin on your kids' escape room game. This means that you have total control to make sure your event is perfect. Personalization like this takes a good party idea and makes it the best party idea.

And you’ll deserve all the kudos you get! (It’s not why we do it… but it’s a pretty sweet perk!)

In the meantime, you can read-up on how to run a kids escape room party here, or, check out some of these frequently asked questions:

Does it work?

Well, of course, I’m going to say “Yes” … but, fortunately, we have plenty of testimonials from happy parents who have been rapt with the Egyptian-themed Escape Room Package from Lock Paper Scissors.

"For my son's 12th birthday, we used The Mummy Escape Room Kit with Lock Paper Scissors. He and his friends had a blast...The kids were thoroughly entertained for 2 full hours and very impressed! Even a few dads stayed to participate!"
- Renae Denbow

Is keeping 12-year-old boys fully entertained for two hours – with no sign of video games, violence, or damaged furniture – something you might be interested in?
Is it too hard?

Every Lock Paper Scissors escape room package has been thoroughly tested and refined so that it hits that sweet spot between being predictable (and boring) and so hard that some kids feel bad.

In that sweet spot, it’s great fun because it’s challenging enough that it really engages the kids. They believe they can do it and want to prove it to themselves and their friends.

It really is something to behold, which is why so many parents love the experience of watching their kids taking part.


Is it anything like the pictures?

This is one of the best things about the Lock Paper Scissors Egyptian-themed Escape Room Kit: not only does it look absolutely amazing – exactly like the pictures on our site – but it takes very little effort from you to set it up just so.

In fact, more often than not, parents who buy the Egyptian-themed Escape Room Package get right into the set-up process:

"We used the Lost Mummy Kit for my niece’s 11th birthday party, and it was a big hit! I had just as much fun creating the props and putting it together as the kids did trying to “escape”! I loved that it came with all of the artwork, editable, that could be used as party decorations."
- Jennifer Wells
