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!


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

  • 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).

  • Making your own playdough isn't just great, squishy fun for the kids; it helps develop their fine motor skills. Try this playdough recipe.

  • For many of us, it can be hard to stay on top of everything in such a busy schedule. Often a 'walk and talk' is a good way to catch up with others and the kids can come along and run around.

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