We challenge you to …

… keep these up! Continue to make time for each other and more memories. Whatever shape or size your family is, making memories is one the greatest joys in life. We hope these challenges have made you think of different ways to spend time with your favourite people, but don’t stop just because summer has!

We challenge you to …

… all read the same book. Or play a game together. It really doesn’t matter, but there’s nothing more satisfying than your kids seeing you engaged in something they enjoy.

Ever wonder why your kids spend so long completing their newest game? Then complete it with them! Throw in a prize of ice creams if everyone manages it and lose yourself in whatever it is you choose this summer.

We challenge you to …

… go somewhere you’ve always wanted as a family. We know summer can be an expensive time of the year for day trips, but there are so many places across the country you can have a fantastic family day out on the cheap! Whether you brave a trip to LEGOLAND or take a picnic blanket to your local park, find somewhere your family will remember for years to come.

Weekly Challenge

We challenge you to …

… have a family get together. Summer is a great time to have big family gatherings – whether it’s a BBQ in the garden, a mini break or maybe just visiting those distant relatives you only see once a year.

While the weather is (surprisingly) good, why not spend time with the people that matter most. 

Weekly Challenge

We challenge you to …

… spend a whole evening without technology. You could take the kids out for a walk, play games in the garden, or tell stories around a firepit. Or if you really can’t leave your devices alone for too long, why not get the family to take photos and make a collage from their favourites? Perhaps you could record videos for family who live far away.

Try it out and see what difference it makes to your family this week!
