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!


  • Plant a small garden together - the kids will have fun and learn as they decide which plants to grow in the garden they helped to build.

  • 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).

  • If your family finds it hard to disconnect from digital media, try putting your laptop, smartphone and other devices in a cupboard or somewhere out of sight for a set period of time.

  • One clear evening, take the family outside and see if you can find south using the stars, if you can spot any of the famous star constellations, or simply make up your own shapes. For more ideas to explore the sky with your kids, visit here.

  • 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.
