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'.

  • 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.

  • Your little ones will love opportunities to practice their kicking and catching balls, climbing and balancing with you.

  • Physical activity helps boost your heart and lungs' ability to get blood to your muscles.

  • Shovelling or carrying heavy loads counts as physical activity, so keep it in mind when you have work to do in the garden!
