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.


  • This weekend, organise to meet up with your extended family, the neighbours or friends at the park for a game of cricket or soccer.

  • 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.

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

  • At each meal time you share with your family, take turns of telling each other the three best things that happened during your day. Make sure everyone has a turn!

  • 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.
