Here is my best explanation:

'children's game' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'is quiet before end of party' is the wordplay.
'quiet' becomes 'p' (music symbol for 'piano').
'before' says to put letters next to each other.
'end of' indicates one should take the final letters.
The last letter of 'party' is 'y'.
'is'+'p'+'y'='I-SPY'
