What a splendid idea!! I know a few of us "Auntie's" who would enjoy playing
with them as well!! I don't know about the kids, but some of the activites (or lack
thereof) seem a bit dull to me, I would think they would be to the kids as well.
We've been pretty lucky here ( BG) to have MoC's who are pretty creative, and
check out "period" type stuff for them to do.

You'd probably want to do some polling in the Kingdom at large, and for sure
a survey to each MoC for input. I would think that would be where you would
get your best respondants.

Not sure about parents (being an Aunt instead), but I think it would be fun for
everyone who wanted to participate. I have a question about the height based
part though.....would they not be allowed to participate if under a certain height
(understanding that some of us were small for our age), or just divided in groups
by height? Best of luck with this! I think it's a wonderful idea!
