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!


  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 for a set period of time.

  • Make a pledge to limit your family's screen time. Make the most of time spent together and have fun by playing games or getting moving in some way.

  • Have a look at what's on at your local Communities@Work community centre. Often there are free classes or groups you can join with other like-minded people and families.
