Spymaster Activity Box

Though widely celebrated for his political and diplomatic achievements, John Jay played an important role in creating a spy network to help defend the colonies during the Revolutionary War. Designed to entertain kids for hours, each Spymaster Activity Box contains an age-appropriate book about Revolutionary spies; spy-themed books; a book full of different types of codes to create and decode; materials and directions for over a dozen spy themed crafts and activities; secret spy gear; additional games and activities you can try at home; and access to supplementary downloadable content. Reading material and activities are designed for children entering grades 2 through 6. The price per box is $100, with a 10% discount to members.  Advanced registration and payment required.  Boxes will be available for curbside pickup from John Jay Homestead on a rolling basis, beginning June 29. We will schedule your pick-up time following receipt of your order.


We have two boxes available with differentiated materials by grade level (Grades 2 & 3 OR Grades 4-6). Please purchase the correct box for your child’s age.
