    THE STORY

    Agent Willow needs the kids help on a Secret Agent Operation!

    We think a letter containing the secret location of their next villain meeting was sent the wrong address.

     

    Guess what? It has been delivered to you!

     

    Guided by Agent Willow’s voice messages, can the kids trick the villain's assistant, Miss Trout, to go to the wrong meeting location?

     

    WHAT HAPPENS

    In this play once secret agent experience, kids and a stealthy grown up work together using their wit and skills to trick a villain’s assistant all from the kitchen/dining room table!

     

    The story based activities have been specifically designed for kids aged 6-10 to help improve confidence and empower them to lead the way. Rather than doing hard puzzles we focus on decoding, drawing, and things to boost imagination and creativity, collaboration and some other super stealth learning too!

     

    Guided by Agent Willow, kids will decode a picture code, draw and display a poster to enlist the help of an nearby Agent, ultimately tricking Miss Trout by sending her to the wrong meeting location.

    And the best bit, it all feels like the kids are on a secret agent operation!

     

    The experience also doesn’t contain or encourage the use of violence or weapons

      • Step 3. Play! (40-60 mins)
    • What you need to play

      • Access to a printer (to print 2 sheets of paper for the experience) 
      • Good internet access via smartphone

      • Scissors (used by the grown up to set up to play)

      • Bag or box to put pens etc in (handy, but optional)
