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 little ones moving to music or try action songs like 'Head-Shoulders-Knees and Toes'.

  • Regular physical activity helps to reduce your chances of catching a cold or flu.

  • Try to keep family activities varied, and be sure to let your children take turns choosing what activity the family will do next.

  • Encourage your kids to create, imagine and choose their own play. They'll be learning creative play and independence (e.g. climbing a tree or building a cubby house out of chairs under sheets).

  • Try using our Habit Tracker to keep track of how often your kids do strength building exercise.
