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!


  • Make an effort to get to know your neighbours or other people living in your street. Encourage your kids to make friends and play with the kids next door, or simply say "Hi!" when you're putting out the bins.

  • If your family finds it hard to disconnect from digital media, try putting your laptop, smartphone and other devices in a cupboard or somewhere out of sight.

  • If you're able to pick the kids up after school, why not head straight to the park for some fun time together?

  • Encourage polite and respectful behaviour at meal times. Try to wait until everyone is seated before you start eating.

  • Raining outside? Set up an indoor obstacle course for the kids using boxes, couch cushions, blankets, or any other household items you can find. Download the Four games to keep you moving indoors game card from our Resources.
