Secret Agent School

Welcome Secret Agents!

The Motley Kids welcome all the new Motley Agents to our Secret Agent School! We’ll be crafting, cooking, and cogitating our way around the world as we search out B.O.R.E.D., so we’d better be prepared! Join us as we put together our Secret Agent Gear in this craft!

Collect your Secret Agent Passport and make sure you have plenty of Motley Money to take with you on your voyage! 

Secret Agent Briefcase

The first thing you’re going to need is a Secret Agent Briefcase! To make this craft you’re going to need:

  • A flat cardboard box (like a pizza box)
  • A strip of ribbon for a handle
  • Glue or tape to attach your ribbon
  • Decorating supplies

You’re going to want your briefcase to open at the top, so set it on the table so the lid opens AWAY from you..


Attach the ribbon to the sides of the box, over the top, to make a handle. If you use glue, remember not to pull on it until it’s dry.

If your briefcase has a hole in the lid, you can cover it by gluing some construction paper over it!.

If you have a set of hook-and-loop dots, then attach one in the middle of the top of the lid. Cut a short piece of ribbon and attach it to the top of the box. Use the other half of the hook-and-loop dot on the ribbon to make a latch.

Close your briefcase and decorate it in your very own Secret Agent style!

You can put your passport and your Motley Money in your briefcase before you move on…


Disguise Kit

Every secret agent needs a disguise! We’ll make a pair of chenille-stem glasses and a dapper mustache to hide behind, and keep them in our briefcase. 

What other items could be part of your Secret Identity? Do you have a special outfit to wear when you’re on a mission?


Spy Glasses

Make a pair of secret spy glasses so nobody will know your True Identity

For this craft you’ll need:

  • 3 or 4 chenille stems (also known as pipe cleaners)


Use your chenille stems to make a pair of disguise glasses by twisting them together. 


You can glue plastic wrap or cellophane to your glasses to make colored lenses to hide your Sneaky Secret Agent Gaze, or you can leave them open. 

It’s a well known fact that putting on a pair of glasses makes it so nobody will recognize you. Keep them handy! 

Mysterious Mustache

Make a mysterious mustache to complete your Secret Agent Disguise!

For this craft you’ll need: 

  • 2-3 feet of Yarn or string
  • Scissors
  • 1 chenille stem (or pipe cleaner) in a matching color


To make a mustache disguise you’ll want to cut about 10-15 pieces of yarn as long as you want your mustache to be. Longer yarn will make a droopier mustache. They don’t all have to be quite the same length, but it should be close.

Lay them down on the table side by side.

Once you have your mustache pieces neatly lined up, fold your chenille stem in half and wrap it around the middle of your mustache. Twist to secure. 

Keep twisting all the way down the chenille stem to make a stick to hold your mustache with.  

Put your disguise on and get ready to watch your Mission Briefing! Agent M has some important information for you.
