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 this week to incorporate some strength building exercise. The playground is a good place to start. Use the monkey bars to lift yourself up, do lunges against a park bench or step-ups. Every little bit counts.
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.
Break out your kids’ favourite superhero costumes – or make a costume together – then head to the park with your own little league of superheroes!
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.
Can you and your family go for a walk around the block before dinner three times this week?
