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.


  • 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.

  • 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!

  • The garden is a constant source of wonder for young kids, so why not get them involved? They can help with fun, active tasks like digging holes for plants, carrying watering cans or raking leaves into piles. If you plant herbs or vegies you could even pop around to say hello to your neighbours with some yummy, home-grown food!

  • 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.

  • Reduce the temptation of electronic media and put your smartphone or laptop in a cupboard or somewhere out of sight for an hour and see if you can keep it up. It’s hard for children to remember not to touch.
