Challenge your family to get into life

Challenge your family to get into life
These are challenges to help your family get more out of life – but they're so much fun, they won’t really feel that challenging at all! Plus, you can try our handy tips to help get you started.


  • Do two activities with your family and either another family or friends from our printable Resources.

  • The garden is a constant source of wonder for young kids, so why not get them involved? They can help with fun, active tasks like digging holes for plants, carrying watering cans or raking leaves into piles. If you plant herbs or vegies you could even pop around to say hello to your neighbours with some yummy, home-grown food!

  • Can your family try a 'no screen day' once a week for the next month? That's no TV, social media, gaming or anything else you do behind a screen on the set day you allocate. Get all the family to tell their digital and real-life friends and family which night is your no screen night, then if they see you online they can remind you of your commitment.

  • Let the kids make nature bracelets on your next walk. To find out how, look at the Four games to get the kids moving outside in our Resources section.

  • During the ad breaks, mute the sound on the TV and take turns calling out an animal name. Everyone has to move like that animal to a finish line (or the end of the ad break!). Make it more fun by making the animal noise too! You could also use this challenge to break up time spent sitting behind the computer or game device and schedule breaks.
