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!
Give your kids chances to practice talking with others and learn how to listen and be understood, share, take turns, follow rules and be kind and helpful.
If it's raining outside, move the fun indoors with a dance competition, play games with balloons or soft balls, or head to your local indoor swimming pool.
Play word games together. Make up pretend words, "knock knock" jokes or "why did the chicken cross the road?" jokes… anything that makes you all laugh!
Next time why not walk to the shops instead of driving? It's a great chance to talk with your kids, or maybe even play a game of 'I spy' or 'Spot the object' along the way.
Next time you and the kids are heading out for a walk, why not see if your neighbour would like to join you?
