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.


  • Encourage the kids to try walking barefoot on different surfaces - try grass, carpet, concrete or sand.

  • If you're self-conscious about your body, start by being active with a partner or friend - or your whole family. Strength in numbers!

  • Looking for some indoor fun for the kids? Construct a village together out of toys, boxes or things around the house and let the little ones make up a story about a day in the village.

  • A great way to get the family moving together - especially something that makes you huff and puff a bit - is to play a game of tag together. For more game ideas, check out our downloadable Resources.

  • On your little one's birthday, include a present that involves being active. A hacky sack, Frisbee, skipping rope or football are all great options.
