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!


  • Joining a playgroup at your local community centre can be a great way to share the challenges and joys of family life. 'Paint and Play' offered by Communities@Work is a great place to start.

  • Try to eat some meals with the whole family. Sharing meals is a great way to be together and enjoy eating.

  • Often our lives get so busy it's hard to find time to connect with other like-minded people. If you're not already, try to set up a monthly play group with a few friends who might be going through similar challenges as you are. The kids can play and you can catch up on all the news.

  • Raining outside? Set up an indoor obstacle course for the kids using boxes, couch cushions, blankets, or any other household items you can find. Download the Four games to keep you moving indoors game card from our Resources.

  • If it's raining outside, move the fun indoors with a dance competition, play games with balloons or soft balls, or head to your local indoor swimming pool.
