Girls with knack for international espionage can dress up with a quick girl spy costume made up with a few items from around the house. Children and parents should look at films, such as "James Bond" or "Spy Kids" as a reference for this costume. Most girls can wear fancy dress items from their closet or an older sister and use spy accessories to complete the look.


Step 1

Any color of suit would work well for this project.

Dress your girl in a skirt suit, or a matching jacket and knee-length skirt. Spies are generally well dressed. A simple black dress may also be worn.

Step 2

A girl can wear a small adult trench coat, if necessary.

Put a beige colored trench coat over the suit. The trench is the classic spy coat. Place a simple hat on, too. Instruct your girl to wear dark sunglasses.


Step 3

A spy watch looks like a wristwatch, but it has secret gadgets.

Draw a round watch face on construction paper to make a spy watch using markers. Add the numbers and any gadgets with marker. Cut it out.


Step 4

Cut out a 2-inch ring from a toilet paper or paper towel roll. Glue the watch face flat onto the ring so it looks like a watch. Snip the ring on the opposite side of the watch face so your child can wear the watch like a cuff.

Step 5

Instruct your girl to wear dark-colored dress shoes. Carry a magnifying glass to complete the spy girl costume.


Construct a magnifying glass with the leftover cardboard roll. Cut out a circle from cardboard and then cut out another circle in its center. Tape this "O" shape on one end of the cardboard roll.

Girls can also wear black pants and a long-sleeved black shirt instead of the suit. If she chooses this outfit, boots can be worn.


Use caution carrying toy guns. Other people may not know the gun is just a toy.
