a healthier family life/work life balance...

...they are less likely to suffer exhaustion and burnout from trying to 'do it all' for their students & their families at home

School Families

When your Student's Parents feel like you care about the burdens of parenting & devices...

...they are more likely to engage with the school, be open to your suggestions & work
together with you

Not only are your school families & staff faced with external pressures regarding the economy and work demands, but the internal pressures weigh for so many & can be very overwhelming at times. 

  • Over 50% of marriages have either ended in divorce or are in the process of separating which severely affects the mental health of individuals and their children
  • Parents stress levels are on a whole new playing field navigating parenthood in uncharted internet / social media territory and dealing with severe device addiction, cost of living stresses, affecting the wellbeing of both child and parent

Impact on Your School Environment  

  • Students unable to stay focused as so many things on their young minds so it is difficult be fully engaged in listening & learning
  • ​Inability for teachers to thrive in their jobs due to exhaustion stress & overload of caring for students & their own families in this era 
  • Lack of joy & enthusiasm for more & more students & teachers which hinders concentration & can quite quickly lead to
    depressive thinking

If you give your student families support by means of a simple tool to help them KEEP CONNECTED AT HOME
even when challenges arise...

...your students will become much more

    Looking for an affordable yet meaningful gift to give to a large group of people?

    Consider DIY Family Bonding Kits! 

    We’ve worked with many big and small companies, some of which are listed below.

    How it all began…

    Meet Sarsha and Mike, the FUN duo from Australia who have been running an exciting and interactive team bonding business for corporations for the past 17 years.

    Here's a part of our story of how the Family Bonding Kits were created.....

    A few years ago, life took a challenging turn when one of our daughters was struck with sudden & severe illness and we nearly lost her a couple of times. She inspired us with her courage to rise above it
    But it still completely rocked our foundations to the core. 

    Our faith was shaken & marriage, finances and wellbeing all fell to pieces in a very short amount of time.

    It completely changed our world but we knew we had to do something for our family.

    We soon realised we could draw on our own years of skills & experience in team bonding for corporate organisations and decided to create a FAMILY TEAM BONDING KIT for our own family team. Our daughters were 8, 13 & 15 and it was just what we needed to bring our own team back together again.

    …..and thus
    The Family Fun Boxes - Family Bonding Kit 
    was proudly born.

    It was amazing and it turned our family around in a huge way during our challenging times.

    It also definitely helped us get off devices, get our fun spirits back and start truly connecting again.

    We now have a fun, simple system ready to go each month. We usually picked the 
    1st Sunday of the month as our family time
    and pick an activity from the box.

    We randomly pluck activities out & about that one of the kids wrote down, something creative at home or even just pick a topic/question from the Family Chats Category.

    It usually always ends in a laugh about something which shifts the mood/atmosphere to fun/joyful one.

    We still use it every week  and will continue to use for as long as we are a family. 

    Without it, I don’t think we would have gotten our family mojo back.

    Our challenge was minimal compared to so many other families hit with so many more external pressures, that introducing a Family Bonding Kit to help create regular family bonding at this time could be a simple antidote the world needs right now........

    Just as there is a FAMILY FIRST AID KIT in every household cupboard for physical health
    - there is now a need for a FAMILY BONDING KIT on every kitchen bench for Family Wellbeing.

    In the midst of such bad news over the years, we are thrilled to present this Family Bonding Kit to the marketplace.

    Below is a photo of one of our Family Fun Boxes Kit activities chosen by our middle daughter.
    It’s of hubby Mike & our 3 girls.

    I eventually jumped in after much coaxing from the family.... and was glad I did as this day was very fun!

    Hear what others have said ....

    "We have been really excited to use the Family Bonding Kit! We've done lots of the 'No Cost' Activities & the Family Chats questions mainly as it has been a bit of a hard time financially lately. We love it!
     Every time we pull out a suggestion, we lock in a date to do it and put it up on the fridge. The suggestion list really helped us get ideas rolling. It helped us learn what we could do that was something we may not have realized we enjoyed. 
    The ideas are brilliant because they add value and quality time together. We love it."

    Sarah, Mum of 2 boys & a girl
    "When times have been hard the Family Bonding Kit has given us all something to look forward to each week!"

    Chris, Mother of 4
    "The Family Bonding Kit definitely helps bring the family together regularly, especially the activities that don't cost a cent & the Family Chats questions. It's beautiful seeing what the girls plan & organise, using their imaginations and just all being together as a family! The girls want to play together with no fights (real achievement for our family!!!). Very happy with it."

    Erin, Mum of 3
