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!


  • 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!

  • Staying in regular contact with the people in your life - and the community around you - can improve your self-esteem.

  • Twirling and running with streamers is a fun, active game the kids will love. Make sure you join in too!

  • Try incorporating Canberra's outdoors or some physical activity into your catch ups with friends and family. This can be as simple as meeting at an urban park or playground, pool or meeting friends for a bike ride around the lake followed by a picnic.

  • Rediscover classic playground games with your kids, like hide-and-seek, follow the leader, stuck in the mud, or tip/tag games.
