Challenge your family to move more

  • 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.

  • Get the family to try a new activity that you haven't tried before, or haven't done for a while. It may be a sport you can play together, going for a bike ride or even taking the family on a hike up one of Canberra's beautiful mountains.

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

  • 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.
