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!


  • There are endless ways you can motivate your family to move more at home like a game of backyard cricket, soccer, or basketball. And by being physically active with your family, you're also being a great role model for your kids.

  • When you're at the shops with the kids, let them help pay for things, scan your groceries, help pack the bags, and have conversations with shop assistants. You'll probably both get a kick out of it!

  • Join up with another family at the park and form teams to play a game of cricket or soccer.

  • 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.

  • Instead of your family watching TV or playing games on your phone, computer or other devices, try to get moving together as a family instead! To find out more go to the resources section.
