Happy Monday! How are your challenges going so far? I hope you’re enjoying them and learning some things from them.

If you missed the previous challenges, you can catch up here:

Today’s Challenge

Tonight, you’re going to spend an evening without electricity.

This means you’ll have to figure out what you’re having for dinner, how you’ll light the house, and more challenging still, how you’re going to entertain the family. So no video games, no phones, no television or movies. (May the force be with the parents of teenagers.)

You can turn the power back on at bedtime if you are in an area with hot weather so you can sleep comfortably.

If you need some tips, check out my PDF called The Blackout Book.

Tell us how it went!

Did your kids attempt a coup? What did you do for off-grid entertainment? What did you have for dinner and how did you light things up? Share your evening with us in the comments below.

Remember, if you want to win prizes, post over in the forum.
