We hosted a little dinner party the other night, ala the game Clue.
Complete with socialite, hair tonic salesman, doctor, actress, maid, cop, general, lawyer, and ninja (of course...)
About as fancy a dinner part as you can accomplish with 8-10 year-olds.
Then they foud a dead body!
And a round of discovery, where we made our accusations.
And the big reveal, when the hair tonic salesman confessed.
We tried to figure out how to get a Boy Scout badge out of this, but had to give in and just admit that it sounded like a fun thing to do. And it was. The kids were amazing at staying in character and interrogating one another.
