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!


  • Have fun outside! Time spent playing together with your kids in Canberra's outdoors isn't just fun and great exercise, it also lets your kids practice physical skills like climbing and catching.

  • Try to give your kids your full attention if they're telling you about their day - it'll remind them just how important they are to you.

  • Organise a barbecue for your street so everyone can meet their neighbours. For tips on making this happen, see www.neighbourday.org

  • 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!

  • Try mixing it up a bit and let your children take turns choosing what activity the family will do next.
