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 set a good example at home by reducing electronic media use for entertainment. Turn off the TV - especially at meal times - and make bedrooms TV and computer free zones.

  • Helping others - whether they're friends, family or strangers, is a great way to give back and make yourself feel good.

  • Looking for some indoor fun for the kids? Construct a village together out of toys, boxes or things around the house and let the little ones make up a story about a day in the village.

  • Local libraries offer great author talks and activities especially for kids such as Giggle and Wiggle, Storytime and school holiday programs. 

  • Playing with balloons can be fun and active for all ages. Join the kids in a game of punching, kicking or throwing balloons and keeping them off the ground for as long as possible.
