Challenge your family to get into life
These are challenges to help your family get more out of life – but they're so much fun, they won’t really feel that challenging at all! Plus, you can try our handy tips to help get you started.
Reduce the temptation of electronic media and put your smartphone or laptop in a cupboard or somewhere out of sight for an hour and see if you can keep it up. It’s hard for children to remember not to touch.
Try starting your own club or team and invite other families to join. Whether it’s your extended family, the neighbours or friends, your club or team could play a sport, go on weekly walks, or visit Canberra's great parks and nature reserves! Not only will you spend time together being active, you'll avoid paying registration fees!
At each meal time you share with your family, take turns of telling each other the three best things that happened during your day. Make sure everyone has a turn!
Do two activities with your family and either another family or friends from our printable Resources.
The garden is a constant source of wonder for young kids, so why not get them involved? They can help with fun, active tasks like digging holes for plants, carrying watering cans or raking leaves into piles. If you plant herbs or vegies you could even pop around to say hello to your neighbours with some yummy, home-grown food!
