'Invisibility cloak' consisting of a rope around each patrol or six and they all have to go everywhere tied up as a bunch! Aragog's web - a rope stretched around picnic chairs and tables and trees and stuff, about a metre off the ground with small bells hanging on it : the girls have to negotiate their way through the web without ringing any bells and all staying within the rope tied around them! Very good fun to watch!
