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.


  • Make time to be active as a family in your backyard or local park and play some sport such as cricket or footy, or have a running race.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
