Some of you may be familiar with the Weekly Challenges we post up each week. They usually involve a fun challenge we can do on the boards such as photo challenges, quizzes, riddle challenges and more!

We're looking for new challenge ideas so if you have any, comment them below :)

    1.3 positive thoughts a day 
    2. Something you like about yourself each day ( my hairs nice today , Ohh I did my nails and they look cute etc ) 
    3.Short  poem challenge - different theme each day or one theme for the week 
    4. Push yourself outside your comfort zone ( do something you wouldn’t usually go , walk instead of taking the bus , work in the day it’s set instead of last minute etc ) 
    Sometimes all you need is one person to believe in you , for you to begin to believe in yourself.

    Extreme Reading (I did it in year 4- aka when dinosaurs existed  😂😉😜.)

    What you were like as a baby (photos are optional.)

    Mindfulness  (if it hasn't been done already.)

    Weirdest ever primary or secondary school memory.
    Everyone is special in their own way. We make each other strong (we make each other strong.) We're not the same. We're different in a good way. Together's where we belong. We're all in this together. Once we know. That we are. We're all stars. And we see that. We're all in this together. And it shows. When we stand. Hand in hand. Make our dreams come true.

    Hey folks,

    Just bringing this thread back up, has anyone got any ideas for the weekly challenges? 

    Also there is already some super cool ideas, so thank you for sharing them already.

    Not had much patience to read through the comments so sorry if I've said anything that's repeating. 

    You could do a "draw your emotions" challenge, I do it sometimes and it helps to get the emotions away from you and lock them into paper.
     

    Hey, hey, hey everyday when I wake,
    I'm trying to get up, they're knocking me down.
    Chewing me up, spitting me out.
    Hey, hey, hey when I need to be saved,
    You're making me strong, you're making me stand.

    Create a story challenge, like you start off with a sentence and everyone adds their own sentence to it and you get one weird and funny story at the end :lol:
