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!


  • Consider joining a community group or club in your local area. You could try anything from a sporting group to a special interest group for things like photography, craft or cooking. Go to the Connect and Participate Expo to find a club for you and your family.

  • If you've got a dog, kicking or throwing the ball for the dog will keep everyone on the move. 

  • Get your little ones moving to music or try action songs like 'Head-Shoulders-Knees and Toes'.

  • Board games like snakes and ladders, dominoes and simple card games will teach your kids the concept of fair play, and how to win or lose graciously.
