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.
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?
Try some strengthening exercises you haven't already tried. Here's some ideas to get you started:
Play a game of tug-o-war or hopscotch. Pick up some rope at your local hardware shop or buy some chalk.
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.
