Challenge your family to move more

Challenge your family to move more
The challenges below will get your family moving and will help make being physically active a part of everyday life. You can also check out our handy tips for more great ways to get started.


  • Take paper and crayons along on your family walks and the kids can place their paper over any surface they find interesting, then rub the side of their crayon gently over the paper. Voila! A paper rubbing the kids will love.

  • Can you and your family go for a walk around the block before dinner three times this week?

  • Challenge your whole family to see how many push-ups, lunges or jumps you can all fit into five minute bursts. See if you can beat your best time week after week.

  • Set some challenges for the kids. Who can spin the hula-hoop 10 times? Who can jump rope for a whole minute? Who can juggle a soccer ball ten times?

  • Hold a scavenger hunt! Print out our Scavenger Hunt guide or check out the other Resources available.
