I was wondering what the best way to explain the difference and how to use the words "they're, their and there" properly because I always get them mixed up.

They're is the easiest if you remember that it's a contraction of "they are".
If something isn't here then it is there. Note that there contains here.
Their (plural) is a possessive adjective which is used before a noun.
•Their house is big.
....and used to describe something as belong to them.
•The children put their books in their school bags.
If the word means "belonging to them," use their.
They’re is a contraction of they are. e.g. They’re happy = They are happy
It is often followed by the present participle (verb form ending in -ing).
•They’re singing loudly.
There has several different uses.
Adverb that means the opposite of "here"
- He’s over there.
- Stop right there.
Pronoun that introduces a noun or clause.
There is something strange going on.
Is there a phone?
Adjective that emphasizes which person.
- That guy there seems to be in trouble.
Noun that means "that place."
From there, we drove to Boston.
I’m not going in there.
