Life Pack Kete Ora - A Card Game You Play For Fun And For Thriving

Project 2020-04-24 14:34:55 +1200

Are you a parent worrying about these tough times? A mum who has an anxious child? A Dad who wants to reduce electronic time and connect more as a family? Do you want to ensure your children have good life skills so that they can look after their own wellbeing now and in the future?

WE CAN HELP WITH THAT!

Life Pack cards are fun, improve all your family's wellbeing and help you all to learn fabulous life hacks. For big kids and small, the whole whanau can win!

These are way more than a bunch of activities. There are many ideas, lists, calendars for keeping your kids from being bored but they don't teach how to look after your mental wellbeing! The Life Pack Kete Ora cards have specifically chosen actions for each of your family members to learn wellbeing hacks. Once you have learnt and practiced the wellbeing hacks through the cards, each of your family will have a wellbeing toolkit, for the rest of their lives. 

Will you accept the mission? Through being a creator of joy, doing a random act of kindness, having some silliness or calmly de-stress you will start learning. Each deck of fifty cards has five different types of hacks (Connect, Give, Take Notice, Be Active and Keep Learning), prompting you to perform an action and then reflect.

These cards are based on scientific evidence and proven to improve wellbeing. The Life Pack cards are inclusive and accessible for all people to use. Put some new life hacks in your backpack for wherever life takes you.

"What a great idea to get the family interacting and off screens. The illustrations are charming and actually looks like a lot of fun! I hope you get the funding needed for this" Beff

"We often see innovation in harder times and the team behind Flourish Kia Puāwai have been creating innovative and thoughtful events and resources through many harder times in Canterbury. This is their latest offering" The Worry Bug

"Looks like a great resource! " Tess

A bunch of kiwis have got virtually together in lockdown to help all New Zealanders to have fun and be well at any time. Led by Michelle Whitaker; "We wanted children to not even know they are learning but have fun, immediately improve their wellbeing and end up with new skills in their wellbeing kete. The adults will learn a lot too!"

We created these for you, your kids and bubble to play at any Alert Level and after. We need to reach the goal of 1000 pre-orders to cover printing and postage for this to go ahead.

HOW TO PLAY

In a mini booklet that comes with the cards are helpful ways to reflect and learn about the Five Ways to Wellbeing and how they can work together too. We explain how to be a Ninja Whanau and how to get the most out of Life Pack Kete Ora. We also tell you about the science behind it.

1.  Get the whanau together and decide how you'll play today. Are you picking a random surprise mission or choosing from the Pack. Some missions are solo play and some are for the whole family. Some are for short or time limited or for as long as a day. Do one daily or mix it up.

2.    Pick a card and do the action by following the instructions. Have fun, do it safely and if it is too easy then ninja it up.

3.  Once the Mission is completed get together and reflect why it was a (Connect, Take Notice, Be Active, Keep Learning, Give) hack. What other activities do you do everyday or on special occasions that would fit under that same mission. Which hacks do your family find easy and do a lot of? What hacks does your family do little of?      

4. Once you have reflected, follow the instructions on the bottom of your card. Some go back in the pack and some you hand on to next player (knowingly or sneakily).

All Life Pack cards fit under one of the five hacks (Five Ways to Wellbeing) plus we've added in some special Joker Missions too!

ABOUT US

We have a team of passionate people around New Zealand that really wanted to create something to help families with young children. We've all worked in our own time to create the Life Pack. A minimum of 1000 packs need to be sold to cover basic costs to get them printed and sent to you.

Flourish Kia Puāwai is a social enterprise for community and environmental wellbeing in Ōtautahi, Christchurch. We are a new organisation with some very experienced people. Flourish's Michelle Whitaker, Mark Torstonson and Sharon Torstonson led community wellbeing initiatives through and following the Christchurch earthquakes.

We've also brought in Dave Tex Smith, Denise Bijoux and Toby Falconer who deliver innovative community services around New Zealand. Michelle, Steve Carter and Esther Pocock were part of the All Right? Wellbeing Campaign. Tama Smith is a teacher of both primary and high school, Dave a multi-talented Illustrator and clever Mel Banfield is our graphic designer. We've also got Dr Sarb Johal, a psycho-social wellbeing expert we check in with too.

The science comes from the UK New Economics Foundation's 5 Ways to Wellbeing; Give, Take Notice, Be Active, Keep Learning and Connect which some of you will recognise from NZ Mental Health Foundation, Canterbury's All Right? Campaign and The Wellbeing Game (which Michelle created after the earthquakes and would love to revive someday).
