New Years QR Code Challenge

Here is a fun QR Code Challenge you can do with your kids on New Year Eve or on New Years Day or anytime in January. I have listed twelve challenges below. Feel free to pick and choose the challenges that you want to use. You don't need to complete every single one. Just pick the ones you want your kids to complete.

If you do this on New Years Eve you can put each of the QR Codes in an envelope and write the time on each one. For example: If you want your family to complete all 12, you could do one every twenty minutes and that would take 4 hours! Perfect for filling a long New Year's night. Or you could do fewer challenges and space them out every 30 minutes to an hour. It is completely up to you.

Another fun way to play is to give the kids 7 or 8 challenges on New Year's Day and tell them that you will give them a reward if they have completed them all by dinner time. This is a fun way to keep the kids busy while Dad catches his football games.

You could also complete 4 or 5 for your first family night in January. The challenges that have you write goals and reflect on the previous year are perfect for a family to complete together. However you use these challenges, I hope you will have a wonderful New Year! Thanks for reading!

Challenge #1
Write down 5 cool things that happened to you in 2013
