Tips to get your family into life

With a few pointers from the tips below, you and your family could get more out of every day. Or, try some of our challenges to really get things rolling!


  • Every trip to the park, or even your backyard, can be a new adventure if you can just add a little creativity into the mix. Break out your kids' favourite superhero costumes - or make a costume together with your kids - then head to the park or the backyard with your own Little League of Superheroes!

  • If it's raining outside, why not pretend to be the weather? Swirl like the wind, stomp and clap like thunder, or dance a sunny jig to chase the clouds away!

  • Making your own playdough isn't just great, squishy fun for the kids; it helps develop their fine motor skills. Try this playdough recipe.

  • When your kids get frustrated, it can sometimes be too much to handle. Hang in there and try to repeat back what you think they're feeling. It will help them learn to express themselves and over time it will help make them feel respected, comforted and cope with their emotions better.

  • Make a pledge to limit your family's screen time. Make the most of time spent together and have fun by playing games or getting moving in some way.
