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.


  • Mix it up by getting the kids to choose an activity each weekend for a month that the whole family can do together. It might be bike riding, a scooter ride or a game of tag in the backyard.

  • Play a game of tug-o-war or hopscotch. Pick up some rope at your local hardware shop or buy some chalk.

  • Include some more physical activity into your family's routine for the next few weeks by making a game of household tasks and getting the kids involved. See who can vacuum the floor, mow the lawn or clean the car the fastest in your household.

  • Get the family to do three different activities listed in the Resources section by the time your family's Good Habits for Life program is finished.

  • Play some classic fun games such as an egg and spoon race, a race with plastic cups of water balanced on everyone’s heads, a three-legged race or even a tug of war.
