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:

1. Rubberband Shoot

Cut a hole in a shoe box, lay tape across the floor as a starting position. The aim is to shoot the the rubber band into the shoe box. You could do most out of 10 or who gets the most in a minute.

Obviously emphasise safety.
