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.


  • Too hot or cold outside to be active? Then download our Four games to get the kids moving inside from the Resources section. There are plenty of 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.

  • Challenge your family this week to do a 30 minute walk. Once you are comfortable with this, move to a brisk walk and if you are physically able to, progress to a jog. It does not have to be for a long time or distance, just take small steps to get started.

  • Enjoy the swings, slide and other equipment in your local park. Pretend the bark is hot coals and see if each of you can cross the play area without touching the ground.

  • 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.
