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!


  • Having strong, broad social connections in your life can increase feelings of happiness and self-worth in you... and in your kids.

  • Next time why not walk to the shops instead of driving? It's a great chance to talk with your kids, or maybe even play a game of 'I spy' or 'Spot the object' along the way.

  • Looking to join a community group or club? Check out what's on offer through ACT Communities Online.

  • 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.

  • 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.
