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.


  • 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.

  • Can you all get up and move about in every ad break during your favourite TV show this week? 

  • 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.

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

  • 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!
