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!)

  • 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.

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

  • Let your family create their own meal - buffet style! Place all the toppings on the bench or table and allow family members to prepare their own Fajitas, wraps or salads.  

  • Can your family eat a meal together twice over the course of a week? If you can't get the whole family together at once get as many family members together as you can.
