Joint present for 3 kids - help!

I need to find a game or similar for a family to share - 3yo girl, 7year old boy, 9year old girl. I thought maybe a Christmas themed Lego set but actually that might be too difficult for them to share nicely. A board game perhaps - any suggestions? The 3 yo is nearly 4 and more advanced than most 3yodue to older siblings I guess.
Thanks in advance!

Does it have to be joint? A three year old and nine year old are worlds apart gift wise.

Only thing I can think of is a dvd and treats.

What about a co-operative game like Forbidden Island. Ds was playing from a similar age and because it is co-operative it doesn't matter if the younger one needs help.

Twister? Fun for all ages.

I've bought Cranium Junior and Forbidden Island for 5 and 8 yr olds for this year but not played them yet.

Family edition of trivial pursuit?

Pie face.

My 6 and 8 year old like Forbidden Island but it is better with an adult. I don't think a 3 year old would understand or have the motor control for all the card turning. I think maybe go for a whole family present - board game, big puzzle - pitched to include the 7 year old but not really the 3 year old. You could include a token for the littl'un in recognition that she won't get much of a look in. Light up bath ducks or something.

Some sort of garden game?

Inhave three of similar ages. They would all play a board game, pie face woukd be good for all the ages, I agree. We alsi have surprising fun family games of The Shopping Game which is the youngest ones favourite. There are also some arts and crafts stuff they will ball do - they all like doing qixels or hama beads for example. A big jigsaw would also work i think.
