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!


  • Plan your meals before the week gets busy and get the kids involved with setting the table and preparing the food. Not only will your kids benefit from better eating habits, your whole family will get the opportunity to speak to each other without any other distractions.

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

  • If finding time to connect with other families and friends is a bit much at the moment, try to spend time together with your family this weekend. Go on a drive to one of our surrounding national parks and take a nature walk. Check out the Explore Canberra guide for more ideas.

  • Looking to join a community group or club? Check out what's on offer through ACT Communities Online.

  • Try to reduce your screen time by turning off the TV, computer or game device when they're not in use.
