Have you tried family challenges?
Family challenges are a fun way to bring happiness into your home. They are a fun approach to building family relationships as well as promoting communication, which is not easy to do if watching TV or playing video games.
The challenges could be light hearted competitive challenges such as sit up or push up or working as a family to achieve a goal such as no TV for a week.
Here are 5 ideas for fun family challenges:

Obviously emphasise safety.
