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.


  • Can your family have a regular ‘no screen time’ each week? Start with an afternoon or night of no TV, social media, gaming or anything screen-related and build up to a whole day. Make sure you stick to the rules too!

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

  • You don't have to stop watching TV, but here's a fun idea to get you and your family moving in the ad breaks. Create an animal race by muting the sound and take turns calling out an animal name. When an animal is called, everyone has to move like that animal to a finish line. Make it more fun by making the animal noise, too, and you will have everyone laughing in no time. You can also break up time spent sitting behind the computer or game device with this game too and schedule breaks!

  • Try having a TV free Friday where instead of watching TV you do something together as a family or with extended family or friends.

  • 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.
