   Make an Amazing Race clue box Posted by Jo 
April 12, 2011

A lot of you guys have been asking us for a clue box to go along with our Amazing Race party theme. You ask, we listen!

It turns out this is a super easy project. All you need is a black wall-mount mailbox and the flag template that’s part of our Amazing Race printables collection, available on Etsy.

Just print the flag, cut it out, and attach to the front of the box with some double-sided tape. I chose to laminate the flag before taping it to the box to make it extra durable, but that step is optional. I wish we had made these boxes when we did our Amazing Race party last year, but we’ll definitely use them next time! Imagine just how much more awesome it will be for your racers to pull their clues out of this box.

If you’re hosting a race and are able to be at each stop where the racers got the next clue, you can re-use one box for each leg and just keep moving it. Or, if you want to be more like the show, you can make a few boxes to leave at various points within the leg, for racers to get their clues. You could also mount the box to a pole so it can stand higher, but I would only do this if you weren’t going to move it around a lot and if you were sure all of your stops had room to put the pole. Happy racing!

To make your final pit stop more authentic, why not decorate it with a Travelocity Gnome and some international flags? You might also want to hand out Amazing Race T-shirts to the winners!
