Every year on 15 May the world celebrates the importance of families across all societies and cultures. Now more than ever, as lockdown eases and we may soon be able to reunite with some of our nearest and dearest, we want to celebrate all the fantastic families on TikTok who have been showing us that life under lockdown can be full of fun, despite these challenges 🥰

In many ways, lockdown has brought families even closer together. Multiple generations under one roof, and families of all ages and make ups working from home and homeschooling together has generated a real spike in Family TikTok videos.

Families on TikTok have proven there's both fun, games, pranks and laughs involved in life under lockdown. Here's our top ten family friendly TikTok challenges, to get your grandparents, in-laws, siblings and parents dancing and laughing in no time at all... 👯‍♀️

10 Family TikTok Challenges To Face Together

#BlindingLightsChallenge (238m views) This challenge inspired by the Weeknd's hit song has become incredibly popular with families. Easy enough for even the most uncoordinated parent to learn, it’s the perfect opportunity to get everyone of all ages dancing together.

#ImJustAKid (2.4B views) TikTokers are using the lyrics of the classic pop-punk emo track by Simple Plan to recreate old family photos. Siblings, partners and friends are posing in the exact same way as the original photo which pops up at the end of the video - a great challenge to evoke some nostalgia! What better way to celebrate International Families Day?
