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.

  • There are lots of things you can do at home to build strength. Why not try using tins of tomatoes as hand weights?

  • Try using our Habit tracker to keep a track of how often your kids spend seated. You might be surprised how quickly the time spent commuting, at work or school or watching the television can add up.

  • Remember, doing any physical activity is better than none! Try using our Habit tracker to keep a track of how often your family does vigorous physical activity.

  • If it's raining outside, why not pretend to be the weather? Swirl like the wind, stomp and clap like thunder, or dance a sunny jig to chase the clouds away!
