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.

  • Play word games together. Make up pretend words, "knock knock" jokes or "why did the chicken cross the road?" jokes… anything that makes you all laugh!

  • It's not always easy but try to serve the same healthy meal to the whole family - it's a great way to be together and enjoy eating.

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

  • Try mixing it up a bit and let your children take turns choosing what activity the family will do next.
