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 cloud watching with your kids. Lie on the grass and talk about the different shapes, animals or faces you can see in the clouds above.

  • One weekend a month try not to focus on all the jobs you have to do around the house and take some time out to connect with those who are important to you.

  • Instead of watching TV, put on some music or play an audio book - these activities can be great for your kids' imaginations.

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

  • 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!
