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!


  • When you're juggling parenting with the demands of everyday life, it can be hard to stay on top of everything. Often a 'walk and talk' is a good way to catch up with friends and the kids can come along and run around.

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

  • Kids aged four or under should limit watching TV or playing electronic games for entertainment to no more than an hour per day.

  • Plan your meals before the week gets busy and get the kids involved with setting the table and preparing the food. Not only will your kids benefit from better eating habits, your whole family will get the opportunity to speak to each other without any other distractions.

  • Doing physical activity as a family will help you all to stick to your new routine - it's much more fun being active together!
