Tips to help your family sit less and move more

We’ve got a whole library of practical tips to help you and your family get moving! Keep it fun by trying out some of our challenges, too.


  • Your little ones will love opportunities to practice their kicking and catching balls, climbing and balancing with you.

  • If you're able to pick the kids up after school, why not head straight to the park for some fun time together?

  • Head to your local park and use the monkey bars for lifts or do step-jumps to add more strength building activity into your family's week. You could even have a piggy back race where you can race with the kids on your backs. Click here to find Canberra's play spaces.

  • With younger kids, call being active 'play time' and encourage activities that are fun as well as physical such as hop-scotch, skipping, tips/tag or hide-and-go-seek.

  • If it's raining outside, move the fun indoors with a dance competition, play games with balloons or soft balls, or head to your local indoor swimming pool.
