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!)
Try having a TV free Friday where instead of watching TV you do something together as a family or with extended family or friends.
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.
Take a walk to meet some neighbours in your street that you haven’t met yet. This challenge is a great confidence booster for both adults and children, and an opportunity to nurture new friendships.
Do two activities with your family and either another family or friends from our printable Resources.
