24 day challenge: character strengths

Our challenges are usually 21 days long (the length of time they say it takes to make or break a habit). This one however is 24 days, because it helps your child to explore each of the VIA's 24 CHARACTER STRENGTHS. Through a combination of reflection, challenges and imagination your child will begin to see themselves through the positive lens of their STRENGTHS. 
Watch them become more confident in who they are and what they are capable of.

We wholeheartedly recommend doing the challenge too; you'll learn a lot about yourself and it's a great way to bond over a lovely shared experience.

character strengths activities for your kids

Your 4 CHARACTER STRENGTH activities are below.

Activity 1 also appears in day 14, but we include it here for easy access.

  • 1
    Research has shown that people who know and use their CHARACTER STRENGTHS are happier, healthier, less stressed, and more fulfilled. Before you go on to work on your child's  STRENGTHS it is important to explore how they  feel about their VIA Strengths Report, this activity helps them to do that.
  • 2
    When you use your SIGNATURE STRENGTHS to do things everything feels natural and easy, this is because your brain is wired that way. In this activity, your child will develop a deeper understanding of themselves and learn how they can use their SIGNATURE STRENGTHS more in the future.
  • 3
    Now that your child knows what their STRENGTHS are, the next step is to learn how to GROW and IMPROVE them.In this activity your child will grow a STRENGTH,  a process which can then be applied to develop and grow any of their STRENGTHS.
  • 4
    A scientific study undertaken in 2005 asked a group of people to write down each day for a week 3 reasons why they were grateful for their SIGNATURE STRENGTHS. By doing this the group enjoyed  increased levels of happiness lasting (in some cases) for 6 months. In this activity your child will do a variation of that experiment.
