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!


  • Join up with another family at the park and form teams to play a game of cricket or soccer.

  • Plant a small garden together - the kids will have fun and learn as they decide which plants to grow in the garden they helped to build.

  • It can sometimes be difficult to get everyone together for dinner, so why not start the day together as a family instead? Eating breakfast together is a great way to share what the day's plans are and get everyone off to a positive start!

  • Try cloud watching with your kids. Lie on the grass and talk about the different shapes, animals or faces you can see in the clouds above.

  • Encourage polite and respectful behaviour at meal times. Try to wait until everyone is seated before you start eating.
