I am constructing an ARG
for my 10-year-old daughter, and I'd like some help coming up with puzzles.

Ideally the puzzles (I'm hoping for at least 5 or 6 good ones) will involve a range of different ways of thinking. I'd love at least one math-based puzzle, one language-based one, one "spatial" puzzle (something she has to explore around our neighborhood and the surrounding woods to solve), and something to do with the Internet/Web. The difficulty I'm finding is how to design a puzzle with a solution that leads her on to the next puzzle.
I have got a few bucks to throw at this for materials and what not (say $50-100) and a little knowledge about how to create a website (in 1999, not much of a clue about the state of the art).
The ARG's plot centers around her cat and his place in the line of succession in the Royal Cat Family of Catrolina, so extra points for puzzles that involve cats or royalty. Thanks!
