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.


  • Set out on a stroll and see if you can say hello to some of the people you come across. Encourage your kids to trust their instincts when deciding who they do or do not want to greet. Get to know some people along your walking route.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
