The 'Matilda' challenge is the viral trend we all need right now

If there's one thing every person did when they were a kid, it's pretend to have Matilda powers. Seriously, I'd be willing to put money on the fact that if you're an 80s or 90s kids, you spent a fair bit of time pointing at lamps to try at turn them on, and gawping at Cheerios boxes to see if you could move them without touching them - just to check if you have a bit of telekinesis going for you. After all, you never knew...

If you're anything like five-year-old me, after hours of frantically staring out household items, you probably came to the conclusion that you were, in fact, not Matilda. However, with the arrival of the latest viral challenge - fully supported by film star Mara Wilson - we all finally have a chance to relive our childhood dreams. Let me introduce #TheMatildaChallenge, the new trend that has people moving everyday objects with their minds.

The video that started it all...

How great is this dog?

Just because it was a montage based on a five-year-old girl, it doesn't mean you can't include a beer

It's like magic

Are you sure it wasn't just the wind, Matilda?

I don't think this is quite how the film went?

The challenge sure does separate the wannabees from the real Matildas

You've either got it, or you don't

How fun was that? Now I think it's time for you to partake in the new viral craze sweeping social media and show us what you got.
