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.
Every day this week, smile at a stranger. For kids, it could be someone outside of their year at school, and for you, someone at the shops. Notice how good you feel knowing that you just brightened up someone’s day! (TIP: if smiling at strangers feels too uncomfortable, you could instead choose to give out a compliment to someone you do know!)
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.
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.
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.
Challenge the family to spend one hour a day each day this week playing a board game. By connecting over a fun game you will not only be sparking conversation, but you will avoid the temptation to get behind a screen.
