DJ in the dark – Turn off the lights and set up the decks – can you guess who is DJ-ing from the set they’re spinning?
Get sponsored – Sign yourself up for a Colour Run, readathon, silence, cycle, Fancy Dress Fun Run (which favourite book character will you dress up as?)
Digital Detox – Surgically attached to your phone or tablet? See how long you can look up, not down for and get sponsored at the same time.
