Family Time Tips - free children's activities straight to your mobile

Family Time Tips on mobile phone

Family Time Tips is an innovative digital service for families and is FREE to join!

It offers fun, practical tips and advice to promote children’s learning and development family direct to your mobile.

Daily topics include language and learning through play activities, health and wellbeing tips plus nutritional advice for you and your child.

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 - using the online form below - every day we will send you activity suggestions 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 exciting service in what is a challenging time for children and parents everywhere.

Wishing you and your family good health.
