Murder Mystery Set on the Orient Express
Murder Mystery Set on the Orient Express
A murder mystery game that lasts about an hour (with suitable acting skills!). We played with this brownies (aged 7+) but it is a 'proper' murder style mystery with slightly adult themes. 7 year olds who watch programs like Eastenders would have no difficulty with the themes. You do however need older girls to lead each group. If playing with a single age group I would not expect 7 year olds to cope.

Clay Gargoyle
Clay Gargoyle
Be inspired by the Gargoyles on Cathedrals like Notre Dame and make your own from air hardening clay. Top: When working with clay start with simple spheres and sausage shapes and then pinch them into the shape you want. You might want to use a clean pencil or blunt knife to help shape the clay. Check with an adult first though - don't use your dinning room knives!
