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.


  • 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!)

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!
