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.


  • Stage a ‘Superchef Kids’ event at home. Make chef hats and supervise as the kids run the kitchen. You’ll connect with your kids while they have fun and learn about healthier eating choices.

  • 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. 

  • During the ad breaks, mute the sound on the TV and take turns calling out an animal name. Everyone has to move like that animal to a finish line (or the end of the ad break!). Make it more fun by making the animal noise too! You could also use this challenge to break up time spent sitting behind the computer or game device and schedule breaks.

  • Let the kids make nature bracelets on your next walk. To find out how, look at the Four games to get the kids moving outside in our Resources section.

  • 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!
