Activities for ages 15+

The Consumer Council promotes and safeguards the interests of all Northern Ireland consumers and we have devised a number of consumer rights themed games and quizzes that you and your family can do while you are in the house. The recommended ages for these activities are 15+ years old.

Tag us in photos of you and your family playing these activities on Twitter at @ConsumerCouncil or on Facebook.

Every month we are going to pick someone to win a £25 Love2Shop voucher. So be sure to get creative!
