Why not try the ones that are fun for adults as well? Here are some games that take the boring out of child’s play, for every age.
Escape rooms are a game where a group of friends or co-workers get locked into a space to play some puzzles, so they can all win the reward of leaving the room slightly early.

Either way, you’ll learn something from this video on how to approach any escape room.
