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!


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

  • After school one day, why not have a surprise picnic with the kids and chat with them about their day at school?

  • Make an effort to get to know your neighbours or other people living in your street. Encourage your kids to make friends and play with the kids next door, or simply say "Hi!" when you're putting out the bins.

  • Try using incentives to get your kids to want to eat at the table. Your younger ones could blow out a candle at the end of the meal and older kids could light the candle (under parental supervision).

  • Instead of watching TV, put on some music or play an audio book - these activities can be great for your kids' imaginations.
