Family Time Tips - Get a free daily children's activity straight to your mobile

Now that we're a few weeks into lockdown, you may be struggling for ideas to keep your children busy.

Which is why we're very excited to let you know about Family Time Tips - an innovative new FREE digital service for families.

One fun activity - chosen to promote children’s learning and development - will be sent direct to your mobile each day.

We carefully choose each activity to ensure they positively support your child’s development.

From hand jellyfish craft at the National Marine Aquarium to indoor bike ride adventures - there's a whole range of different things for your family to try.

How it works

The service uses WhatsApp to send you learning and development ideas direct to your mobile phone. 

If you choose to sign up - via this online form - every day we will send you one activity suggestion to do with your child.

These will include handy hints, video clips and other ideas to encourage chatter and play.

  • This is not a commercial activity so you will not receive any advertising.
  • Your mobile phone number will NOT be shared with anyone else signed up to the project.
  • You can choose to opt-out at any time. 

Additional information

The tips are sent via WhatsApp Broadcast which will simply send out one message a day to your phone. You will not be joined up to a WhatsApp group with people leaving messages.

If you do not currently use WhatsApp and would like help in how to set it up, or if you have any other questions about Family Time Tips, please contact Jonathan Lucas at the Early Years Alliance on


We hope you will join us in this fun, useful and exciting service in what is a challenging time for children and parents everywhere.

Wishing you and your family good health.
