This week’s challenge…

Day One and some of the housemates are in the garden.

Of course, unlike the Big Brother inmates, we’re also free to go to the park, or the library (if you haven’t registered yet for the Summer Reading Scheme, then I definitely recommend it. It encourages your kids to actually finish the books they’ve taken out, for a start.)

Another activity you can start now is the Fitter Families Challenge. Ian Wright, MBE, is encouraging families up and down the country to take more exercise and have fun – and it’s free to register and take part. Come on – race you to the goalpost.

    Thanks Liz, these are two really great ideas that can bring a little routine into all the chaos of the summer holidays…My son’s in school’s out club today, which will give me time to look up the fitter families challenge and we’ll be down the library tomorrow signing up for the summer reading challenge!

    In Scotland, they have a similar scheme which is a god send to many parents.My son(5) is so motivated to read and of course the freebies such as stickers and pencils help too. My children’s sports day was rained off the year so we have arranged a family sports day…inviting granny,s and grandad’s,aunties,cousins etc so the whole family can get some excercise over the holidays!! Fingers crossed it doesn’t rain !!

    Will take the children down to the library today to try this – they really need some encouragement to read as would rather be doing other things so anything that helps can’t be a bad idea.

    Funny you should post about Fitter Families – I recently bought the Ian Wright’s Fitter Families book and have been doing the challenge with my family – great to help keep three kids entertained over the summer.
