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.


  • Get your family into some fun activities that strengthen their muscles, like swinging on monkey bars, playing tug-o-war or gymnastics.

  • Doing any physical activity is better than none - every little bit counts. So if you're getting active for the first time or just starting out and feel a little nervous, trying new activities together with friends or family will help.

  • Make sure you get to put your feet up at some point too! Rest is also important to recovery, particularly if you are on your feet or on the go all day every day.

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

  • Pretending to move like different animals is a fun way for your kids to be active, become more aware of their bodies and to learn along the way. Download our indoor or outdoor dice games to get your family moving!
