Family game for 3 and 8 year old?

Hi - my friend has an 8 or 9 year old DD (can't remember!!) and has just adopted a second DD who has just turned 3. I thought a nice gift might be a family game they could play together - does anyone have any recommendations for something that might suit those ages? I'm struggling to think what the 3 yo will be able to manage that the older DD wouldn't be bored by.

If that's a bad idea, any alternative gift suggestions for around £15?

Id like to get something that includes both girls, my reserve gift is 2 teddies (1 big 1 little, with tags saying big sister little sister)

Can't go wrong with Connect 4

Haha thats a good idea thanks! I hadnt thought about an old classic, I was thinking of that pie face game that did the rounds at Christmas a while ago but wasn't sure thr 3yo would appreciate the face splat!

My 4 yo loves that pop up pirate one?! I feel like an 8 year old might play that too! Sure I did when I was 8!

My boys loved greedy granny, it's a bit like buckaroo but with a sleeping granny instead!

How about frustration

My nearly 7 year old plays hungry hippos, connect 4, mousetrap, connect 4 and Ker Plunk with his 3 year old sister. My 3 year old isn’t in to dobble yet, older siblings enjoy it though.

We have a Disney 'I found it' game which is great for all ages of children. It's collaborative as well rather than having a winner which might be nice in this situation

Thanks so much everyone! I think they'd be pleased with any one of these suggestions Smile
