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!


  • Have fun outside! Time spent playing together with your kids in Canberra's outdoors isn't just fun and great exercise, it also lets your kids practice physical skills like climbing and catching.

  • Next time, instead of rewarding the kids with TV, computer or electronic games, why not reward them with balls, kites, skipping ropes or something that gets them active?

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

  • 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.
