The energetic pupils of Little Angels NS in Letterkenny are helping Donegal families get into the spirit of Parent Hub Donegal’s new ‘Make One Change 2019’ campaign.
The innovative project invites families to make some small change to their routine which could make a big difference to their life as a family.
This year’s campaign was recently launched in Little Angels with local singer Sinéad Black, who had everyone up dancing as an example of how to introduce a little exercise and fun into the daily routine – the perfect way to Make One Change.
Why get involved?
Parents and families are being encouraged to commit to the challenge by registering on parenthub.ie.
Every family that signs up for Make One Change will be entered into a free draw. There are many great prizes including lunch vouchers for hotels, passes for family swim, cinema and play centre trips, as well as vouchers for Oakfield Park the electric bikes in Glenveagh days out in Dunlewey and annual passes for Ards Forest Park. Another exciting prizes for 2019 is an amazing overnight family glamping experience in the beautiful yurts in Portsalon Luxury Camping.
What could you and your family do to Make One Change this year?
A Parent Hub spokesperson suggested: For some families it is a choice to make more time for family meals, sitting together around the table. That can make a big difference to family life, taking time to catch up with each other, hearing what is going on, noticing how people are feeling. We also notice our food more when we sit down to eat rather than grabbing food on the run or eating in front of the TV. That means we may eat more healthily and be less likely to overeat—all good reasons to sit down together!
You may decide to-
♦ Get out and do more as a family
♦ Go for a walk—healthy, free and a great way to unwind
♦ Improve communication—listen more, make time for conversation
♦ Have a games or movie night
♦ Make time for laughter and fun
♦ Eat more healthily, keeping treats for the weekend
Parent Hub is grateful to all the sponsors for their generosity. As they say, if you’re not in you can’t win so make sure your family signs up for the Make One Change 2019 challenge!
