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.


  • Playing with balloons can be fun and active for all ages. Join the kids in a game of punching, kicking or throwing balloons and keeping them off the ground for as long as they can.

  • Need something from the local shops? Leave the car at home and walk instead.

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

  • If you're driving for more than two hours, stop, revive and survive. Stop at a park or rest area so you can all get out and move.

  • Try not to overload your family with too much physical activity too quickly, or your kids may come to dislike being active. If they enjoy themselves (and see you're having fun too), it's more likely being active will become a natural part of their routine.
