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 to give your kids your full attention if they're telling you about their day - it'll remind them just how important they are to you.

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

  • Time spent looking at a screen generally means time not spent exercising or connecting with your family - and with so much technology around it's easy to lose track of time. Try allocating specific time periods for media use - preferably not during daylight hours when you can be active outdoors instead - to limit your family's screen time.

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

  • If it's raining outside, why not pretend to be the weather? Swirl like the wind, stomp and clap like thunder, or dance a sunny jig to chase the clouds away!
