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.
Ask one of your kids to be the 'table captain' for a week. For example, as a 'table captain' your child sets the table, takes the family's meals from the kitchen to the table, gets drinks and clears the table (depending on their age of course!). Get each of your children to take a turn over different weeks.
Can your family eat a meal together twice over the course of a week? If you can't get the whole family together at once get as many family members together as you can.
This weekend, organise to meet up with your extended family, the neighbours or friends at the park for a game of cricket or soccer.
Stage a ‘Superchef Kids’ event at home. Make chef hats and supervise as the kids run the kitchen. You’ll connect with your kids while they have fun and learn about healthier eating choices.
A fun game you and your family can play - or even invite other families to play is to create a 'crazy golf' course using items from around the house. You could use blocks, cushions or tunnels made out of cardboard boxes and show the children how to guide the ball around the course. Make the course hard or easy - it's up to you. Create the holes using containers, make a putter out of a cardboard tube and use a tennis ball as a golf ball. You can make different courses and even play a tournament! It's great fun the whole family can enjoy together.
