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.


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

  • Plant some pegs in an area of your garden, then let the kids dig for ‘buried treasure’ using old spoons – they’ll be entertained and active for hours. Check out our Resources for ideas on how to get the family moving outdoors.

  • 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.

  • Instead of watching TV or being online, take the dog for a walk or head outside and play for 15 minutes during the time you would usually spend being inactive.

  • Collect a bag of leaves (remembering to jump around in them) then take the leaves home, glue them to strips of cardboard, and staple to make a beautiful crown.
