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.


  • 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.

  • 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. 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.

  • Let your family create their own meal - buffet style! Place all the toppings on the bench or table and allow family members to prepare their own Fajitas, wraps or salads.  

  • 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.

  • 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.
