Aunt Sunny was willing and very capable. This is what she sent us...
Having an acting aunt and uncle has its benefits. Wasn't that incredible??
I packed clearance backpacks with all the tools needed to complete the mystery.
Smeared cake icing on the wall and bathroom doorknob led the crew to the first clue in a dark room.
The girls ran outside to the minnow trap led by the "little minnows" statement.
One was poison (that was the "chance" they had to take).
Notice the letters in bold. The girls realized they'd have to piece them together to get to the next clue.
Drawers belong to the coffee table with the cats that live on top.
Once pieced together the message says, “You’ve made Papa angry."
There was a tiny message in Papa Bear’s hand that required magnification. “Gidean glade breaden catomuont? Black cloak Mr. Thorne forest FOREST? Mr. Vanderbilt!" This sounds crazy but it's actually a code using a key Charley created months earlier after she was inspired by a book. Charley leads them to the key which is still on the bulletin board. They use it to decode the clue to find it actually says,“What could you do? Go in the Forest. Yes.”
Later the girls were so inspired they spent a long time trying to create their own mystery.
I think this was part of it. :)
